he's starting with a flawed premise. MY FOOD IS DELICIOUS. i love to cook, and do so for my b/f as well as entertain often. people beg me to have parties so they can eat my food, lol. they don't even realize what my personal parameters might be and that they are happily munching away within them.
What is it about people interested in nutrition that makes them want to remove virtually every bit of pleasure from eating?
it has been an interesting evolution for my tastebuds though. when my diet was grain-based, i never "really" enjoyed red meat or much offal, and now there are days i crave it. must. have. liver. like that. after awhile of being grain-free, i was blown away by how sweet red peppers tasted, so yeah, context.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
