Feeding Frenzy

06 Jul 2005, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in food

After another wonderful weekend of cooking, tasting, and sipping cocktails with great friends, I’ve returned to my desk with thoughts anew. Though it certainly can be said that the ideal way to savor a meal is by sitting at a gorgeous table, calmly partaking of an array of dishes, there is a special kick I experience when the food doesn’t even make it that far.

Upon presenting a lovely, simple roast beef perfumed with cloves of garlic and spices, I watched as the first tastes were supplanted by blatant grazing, with everyone gathered around the counter. In minutes the roast was gone. I suppose my inner chef should have been mortified, but I found the whole display of enthusiasm quite delightful. And the bonus: no dishes to wash.
