Not A Cookbook -- A Quote


 "There are some of these foodstuffs that I think just taste better when they die in your mouth as opposed to die when you squish them with a hammer or something like that. And of course you could argue that there is a theatrical element to it."   

René Redzepi at the 2012 New Yorker Festival.  The Noma chef was asked about eating bugs or seafood while it is still alive.

  1. I'm sorry but I don't agree - it's cruel to eat this way. This is eating without conscience. I feel sorry for this guy whose warped sense of the world enables him to think cruelty is theatre.
    I wonder if he'd feel the same way if he chanced upon a tribe of cannibals.

    Other than that - you have a great blog and I love cookbooks too.
