"As an American-born Bengali, I am learning something new here! I do eat in exactly the order you mentioned, but I never thought about it or was taught to do it that way. How bizarre to hear people explain my lifelong eating habits on the Internet." - Pia, on the correct way to eat South Asian food

"When I accidentally added too much oregano to my pizza sauce tonight and didn't feel like milling more whole San Marzanos, I finally opened up the Luigi Vitellis (strained). I was so pleasantly surprised by the bright, fresh flavor!" - Olive123, on canned tomatoes
