"Cupid, Get Out of the Kitchen" William Grimes 2/14 Times article

Ruby | Feb 16, 2001 11:53 AM

I'd be interested in other Chowhounds’ opinions of the above February 14 Times article. Mr. Grimes states that for Valentine’s Day “Restaurateurs are in thrall to the very mistaken idea that food and sex enjoy an intimate relationship. In fact, they are nothing more than friends and maybe not much more than acquaintances…” blah blah.

Has Mr. Grimes no Romance in his heart or was this written tongue in cheek? Has he never feasted on a Grand Marnier soufflé straight from the kitchen into the boudoir? Has he never been fed a peeled grape or fresh fig? Where is the man’s soul? Way back when, even Adam accepted Eve’s juicy apple (“Well, look what happened to them,” Mr. Grimes might reply). IMO, imagination, food, romance and love are all connected and move way past steak and potatoes. I really can’t believe he wrote this article in a serious vein and would be interested in your comments or Mr. Grimes’ comments if he reads this post. Thanks, Ruby
