Food and Wine Shopping and Entertainment
October 13, 2015
I was begininng to believe that it is foolish and perhaps pretentious and often boring, as well as damnably expensive, to make a meal of six or eight courses just because the guests who are to eat it have always been used to that many. Let them try eating two or three things, I said, so plentiful and so interesting and so well cooked that they will be satisfied. And if they aren't satisfied, let them stay away from our table and our leisurely comfortable friendship at that table.

Wash fruits and vegetables with cool tap water before use. Thick- skinned produce may be scrubbed with a brush. Do not use soap.
