Hi there!

THE BEST QUOTE WE'LL READ TODAY
We don't have to play every game to know what winning feels like. We don't have to hear every piece of music in the world to understand music. We don't have to have tried every variety of grape from every vineyard to know the pleasure of wine. Love and laughter and fear and pain are universal currencies. We just have to close our eyes and savour the taste of the drink in front of us and listen to the song as it plays.

WATCH!
NICK CAGE'S TRUFFLE SHUFFLE
We hold this truth to be self-evident: Nicolas Cage Is Secretly The Greatest Actor Ever. Maybe the best since Marlon Brando.

Who else would star in a movie about a truffle hunter who lives alone in the Oregonian wilderness and must return to his past in Portland in search of his beloved foraging pig after she is kidnapped?

Think John Wick but with a swine.


Pig is ou on July 16th. 🐽
A BOOK FOR FOODSTAGRAMMERS

Let me take a picture before I eat
★★1/2

Before Instagram there was food photography. And somewhere in the middle, there were Japanese travelers aiming with patience at their plates in Italian restaurants. This book is a classic and features camera big names like Edward Weston, Irving Penn, Nobuyoshi Araki, and Martin Parr.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Deborah Schoch / The New York Times
Say hello to parosmia, the distorted sense of smell, often resulting in phantom, non-existent, and mostly unpleasant, smells. For many people a gift from Covid-19.
Elizabeth Preston / Knowable Magazine
This week not one, but two articles about fatherhood. This one is about the fact that mammal dads don't raise their little ones: humans, in a way, are better. The other is about how to be a feminist dad. My two cents: you can't scare me, I have two daughters.
