I love Memphis for a number of reasons but one that is near the top of the list is how food obsessed this city is. Last week I had a conversation with my friend Joe & it was entirely about food. What he just cooked in the kitchen at Tsunami & what he was going to be cooking at a underground dinner in the Spring. I haven't been able to stop thinking about this conversation because it made me think about how we all talk about food here in Memphis. We talk about what we just ate, we talk about what we want to eat, we talk about what we are cooking or want to cook, & we wax poetic about what we are eating. Or sometimes we just make guttural noises or say "oh....my...god" while we are tucking into whats in front of us.
