Food and Love and Memories
Jezebel is having a competition between cake and pie, to determine which is the ultimate dessert. This article makes the case for cake to be the champion in this face off.
Why am I posting it to the blog? Because it is a beautiful celebration of the important role food plays in our lives. Surpassing simple nutritional necessity, food takes on cultural meaning, emotional connections, and embodies our memories of friends and family.
So even if I do not agree entirely with the perspective presented in the article (nothing says “welcome home” more to me than a big slice of apple pie), I think this is a lovely look at the very many meanings food holds and the roles it plays.
