Entry: Taste me, see me spell me Apr 7, 2004

What’s hot according to Compass restaurant in New York: pistachio oil and black cashew nuts. Probably more fun to look at than to eat. Food that is inherently sexy: artichokes, wasabi, red peppers, roast chicken (always), coriander, broccoli, panini, Belgian chocolate. Food that has the kiss of death, no matter how delicious: lamb shanks (the word ‘shanks’ comes out of Shakespeare with images of spindly, lantern-jawed men in doublets and hose), eggs, brussels sprouts (does anyone still eat them?), lentils, mealiemeal (local polenta), pumpkin, macaroni, porridge. Very good for you, even tasty, but not sexy.
