"Here is an old French regional dish for you to try. Attempts by presumptuous chefs to refine it have failed to subdue its basically hearty nature. It demands some patience, but you will be abundantly rewarded for your pains.

An old French recipe spans twenty-five pages and six days of cooking. Backed with Eating Fish Alone by Lydia Davis."

"Mice live in our walls but do not trouble our kitchen. We are pleased but cannot understand why they do not come into our kitchen, where we have traps set, as they come into the kitchens of our neighbors.

New and selected stories of consumption, gluttony, and dread by a master of the form. Backed with Country Cooking from Central France by Harry Mathews."
