• Why No Sugar? I don’t use whenever I can avoid it. This includes natural and artificial sugar alternatives. As a result, I don’t crave sugar like I used to.

  • Where Does the Name Come From? “With Bold Knife and Fork” is the name of a book by M.F.K. Fisher. She says what I feel so much better than I can. “People ask me: Why do you write about food, and eating and drinking? Why don’t you write about the struggle for power and security, and about love, the way others do? The easiest answer is to say that, like most other humans, I am hungry. But there is more than that. It seems to me that our three basic needs, for food and security and love, are so mixed and mingled and entwined that we cannot straightly think of one without the others. So it happens that when I write of hunger, I am really writing about love and the hunger for it, and warmth, and the love of it and the hunger for it…”
