Wish I'd said that - October 4, 2015

“Man not only dines; he also kills and sacrifices. The room in which he relishes the animal orders lies between slaughterhouse and temple. There are death’s heads at each end of the table of the world. No doubt we would just as soon forget them. Most cookbooks are content to sit in the kitchen and sing songs. Blood is not pretty. But… Man is not simply gourmet, he is carnivore and offerer as well…. Our home ground remains what it has always been: bloody ground and holy ground at once. Inattention explains nothing.”

Robert Farrar Capon The Supper of the Lamb
