She was wearing a pair of my pajamas with the sleeves rolled up. When she laughed I wanted her again. A minute later she asked me if I loved her. I told her it didn’t mean anything but that I didn’t think so. She looked sad. But as we were fixing lunch, and for no apparent reason, she laughed in such a way that I kissed her.

I jerk around and see Sister Dora, a portly woman who’s the head cook in the kitchen, staring daggers at me. This is nothing new. She stares daggers at everyone who walks through the lunch line holding a tray, as though our needing sustenance is a personal affront.

Nobody got murdered before lunch. But nobody. People weren’t up to it. You needed a good lunch to get both the blood-sugar and blood-lust levels up.

My favourite chef @jamieoliver has a new cookbook!  It comes out September 23rd in Canada.  I immediately added it to my Chapters wish list to let Santa know.
As with most of Jamie’s books there will be a television show to accompany it.  The whole production team does a great job over there, and his photographer David Loftus is a genius.
If you’re in the UK you can get it already, the rest of us will just have to wait.

Even if you can’t make it to Spokane (it’s pretty much a drive from everywhere) don’t worry, you can order online!  The best sugar free chocolate I’ve tasted so far.  Completely free of any weird after tastes.

Vegetarians, and their Hezbollah-like splinter-faction, the vegans, are a persistent irritant to any chef worth a damn.

To me, life without veal stock, pork fat, sausage, organ meat, demi-glace, or even stinky cheese is a life not worth living.

Vegetarians are the enemy of everything good and decent in the human spirit, an affront to all I stand for, the pure enjoyment of food. The body, these waterheads imagine, is a temple that should not be polluted by animal protein. It’s healthier, they insist, though every vegetarian waiter I’ve worked with is brought down by any rumor of a cold.

Oh, I’ll accomodate them, I’ll rummage around for something to feed them, for a ‘vegetarian plate’, if called on to do so. Fourteen dollars for a few slices of grilled eggplant and zucchini suits my food cost fine.

Marley Coffee, find it wherever you can and buy it immediately.  It’s run by Bob Marley’s son Rohan as a tribute to his father’s desire to one day return to farming.  It respects the earth, gives to charity and tastes better than any coffee on the market.  You can get it in K-cups and your mind will be blown, but I still prefer the bags of beans.  

Marley Coffee sources its sustainably grown, ethically farmed and artisan roasted gourmet coffee beans from around the world, including Ethiopia, Central and South America and Jamaica.
Marley Coffee is committed to giving back and they do so through 1Love.org. 1Love is a movement with a simple mission: do good in honor of Bob Marley’s vision of hope and unity. Sparked by the Marley family, it’s a flame that burns for youth, planet and peace—supporting charities that empower people to take action for sustainable and responsible living. A portion of all sales of Marley Coffee supports 1Love.org
