Continuing the Food Theme...

I must be reading too much B.O.T.H. because there seems to be a weird food theme to my posts lately.

From the 11/23/09 New Yorker magazine:

Cautiously, I tasted the Afghan's poutine, which was the basic fries-curds-and-gravy dish without embellishments. My response was similar to the response I'd had some years ago when the composer Ezra Laderman, despite knowing full well that few euphonious sounds had ever been coaxed out of a shofar, wrote a fanfare for shofars that I heard played at the dedication of the Joseph Slifka Center for Jewish Life at Yale: "suprisingly inoffensive."
