amateurs, children, and people with bad table manners
I’ve never heard of eating spaghetti with a spoon.
I never understood why people would use a spoon with their fork while eating spaghetti. If it facilitated the eating of the spaghetti in any way, I might understand. But it doesn’t, it just makes it more difficult and time consuming.
Never ate it with a spoon, either. I always figured it was pointless.
I get what she’s trying to do, but this just doesn’t work.
My mom works for a school district, and if I was at her place I could ask her what the details were and make sure I got them right and I’m too lazy to call or text about this, but if I remember right, the basic problem in our county specifically is that a lot of the kids aren’t used to eating healthy or they just don’t like the food. So rather than eat it, they just throw it out and it gets wasted.
Many an eyebrow was raised when I presented this stack of medieval manuscripts on my birthday. Lucky for my guests, these books were not made of parchment and leather but cake and marzipan. Here’s a codicological description from the top down:
23 Pointes of Good Cookery. A marzipan-bound codex, two quires of pistachio and orange dacquoise lined with a dark chocolate ganache and dried cherries rehydrated with kirsch.
Skelton Sandwich: Quarto sized pound cake with two columnns of whipped cream, strawberry jam glosses and decorated fresh strawberry initials.
Fitzherbert’s Frutefull Matter: An octavo sized volume consisting of lime cake folios with limoncello watermarks, pages of white chocolate mousse and red fruit illuminations.
Both mise en place and mise en page were highly enjoyable!
