I Have Eaten the Answers

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

This Washington Post article is absolutely beautiful, from Pulitzer-winning writer, Sarah Kaufman:

The beauty of the dishes, the flavors that touch the heart — it all starts with what lives in the minds and muscles of the chef. The hungers, the memories, the appetite for labor. Add the grace of the kitchen, and what ends up on your fork is the outcome of a string of sweet moves. From the cooks’ bodies to yours.”

It reminds me of this ShunaFish post that I haven’t shaken from four years ago. Whether it’s during a visit to CityZen or a dining experience during which the line exhibits similar grace, I am smitten by the kitchen dance.
