Anthony Bourdain, “Don’t Eat Before Reading This” by Anjuli

“Good food, good eating, is all about blood and organs, cruelty and decay. It’s about sodium-loaded pork fat, stinky triple-cream cheeses, the tender thymus glands and distended livers of the young animals. It’s about danger – risking the dark, bacterial forces of beef, chicken, cheese, and shellfish. Your first 207 Wellfleet oysters may transport you to a state of rapture, but your 208th may send you to bed with sweats, chills, and vomits.” – Anthony Bourdain, “Don’t Eat Before Reading This,” The New Yorker, 1999
