epicurean philosophy

Last year, a culinary philosophical question was posed at work:

Considering food that is actually prepared (unlike cereals and what not), name a food that wouldn’t go with one of these pillars of epicurean wonder:

  • Cheese
  • Bacon
  • Ranch
  • Chocolate

I’m not sure anyone has come up with a viable answer as of yet.  Remember, when considering such things that you have to forgo your own culinary hang-ups.  For example, I’m not a big fan of Ranch, yet I have the understanding that it would be suitable to get your Ranch on with a burger.

  7. Scallops au chocolat?

  8. Does this mean I have to take cereal of the list of foods that I am able to cook?

  9. Yeah, you’re right. I’ve had (and enjoyed) anchovies on pizza. I guess you found the magic four foods!
