“People who love to eat are always the best people.”
– Julia Child
Ironically, this quote comes directly from a dish towel. I don’t know if Julia actually said it, and I suppose I could look it up on the Encyclopedia of the Internet for veracity’s sake. But I want to believe she said it, so I’m taking the word of my dish towel. I also want to believe that it’s true because I love to eat, I love to prepare food, and I love to hang out with other food lovers. My family is very good in this regard. In fact my niece is responsible for the towel – it was her contribution to our family’s Christmas gift grab, and I grabbed it.
My family and many of my friends and I love to prepare food and then talk about food while eating. In fact, in an act of extreme self-sacrifice and good food sportsmanship several of said friends and family members showed up to eat pi-e when I planned a last minute celebration on 3/14/15 at 9:26:53. It was a monument to our desire to commemorate a once in a lifetime mathematical event. Plus, I make damn good pies. They were the talk of the evening.
