This food question just reminded me of a thought I've been knocking around for a while. Consider the notion of “sad food” for me. Are there foods that are inherently sadder than others? I figure it's all about the context – like so much else. Wedding cake is a happy food, but what about wedding cake eaten by the fistful in a scalding hot shower by a bride still in her wedding dress? Is that not the saddest short story? Anyways...I think I've gone rambly.
Personally, bleeding steaks and sushi have a special place in my heart. I reckon you could serve them at the same time, but that feels clashy. My favorite hard liquor remains Scotch. My favorite cocktail is the ol' Manhattan. I know...you'd think I'd go with the Rob Roy for the Scotch preference, but I guess I'm a sucker for the classics. All told, there's not a food I won't eat, nor a drink I won't drain. For those of you generating a mental image, yes, I'm rail-thin.
