“Here’s a trick you might try at home sometime: pick almost any recipe in the ‘Moosewood.’ Now add bacon. You will find that the addition of this decidedly unwholesome ingredient makes the food taste much better.”
-Ariel Levy, comparing the tone of Our Bodies, Ourselves and The Joy of Sex in “Doing It,” a New Yorker review of the new edition of the later. Unlike the first edition of JoS, food-sex analogies never get old.
Hmm. Interesting. I must admit I did just that tonight! Was making some lentil soup, and decided to get rid of some bacon I’d bought for a brunch a while back. It was delicious! 🙂
