Food & Eating
Latkes on Chanukah… Cheesecake on Shavuot… Matzah on Pesach... Apples and honey on Rosh Hashanah… What are you really hungry for?
The pleasure lasts about five seconds, from when morsel hits palate until it journeys down into your life force. And yet this experience captivates our senses and our emotions. Why? Eating and drinking seems to be highly coarse and insensitive – consuming another living organism just for your fleeting pleasure? How is this delicious, holy, or kosher? For what exactly are we thirsting and in what does our hunger truly lie? Gastronomy may be more than a sum of ingredients.
