Becoming Human Through Cooking

"Food," says Capon, "is the daily sacrament of unnecessary goodness, ordained for a continual remembrance that the world will always be more delicious than it is useful." (40)
The Supper of the Lamb: A Culinary Reflection by Robert Farrar Capon

Jim's thoughts on this favorite book of ours are on transpositions today.  It's worth going over there just to read Capon's toast from the book (at the end of Jim's post).  Brilliant!

The people you have thrust it upon are lucky indeed!
