This is It : A menu poem in 26 courses
A dinner of 26 courses? Can you do that? Of course, of course.
But yes, I have an answer for everything. And you are going to get a taste of a little bit of everything. In honor of Ron I really twisted my mind around what is possible for a meal, well a virtual meal.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating, and this we cannot eat, but we could, if we wanted to. Each of these dishes can be prepared by me and are in the repertoire prepared at my day job. The meal is planned out for an allevening event and would be portioned out with great care so that even the most delicate of attendees would see all 26 courses in style.
The title comes from the last line in my favorite Silliman poem, “The Chinese Notebook,” number 223.
