“With my whole body I taste these peaches” Wallace Stevens

There is nothing more essential than eating, yet it can be enjoyed with such pleasure and ritual that it becomes the living embodiment of our culture, history, and family life. A love affair without the sharing of food is as unthinkable as an empty kitchen.
