Way to go Thoreau

5 Sep

At the end of a show of “Iron Chef America,” the always-keen Alton Brown quoted Henry David Thoreau, who once said:

He who distinguishes the true savor of his food can never be a glutton; he who does not cannot be otherwise.

So true, so true.  Way to go Thoreau.  I was never a huge fan, but not because I actually gave your writing tons of time; rather, a boring, wacky field trip in the seventh grade (in which we had to sit in the wilderness for a few hours and then write about the experience while channeling the prose of Walden) convinced me that your writing wasn’t worth the time.  Admittedly my own failing.  At least you knew something about food!
