Preparing my favorite quiche
(adapted to tart form)
from this cookbook.

"Eating with the fullest pleasure - pleasure, that is, that does not depend on ignorance - is perhaps the profoundest enactment of our connection with the world. In this pleasure we experience and celebrate our dependence and our gratitude, for we are living from mystery, from creatures we did not make and powers we cannot comprehend."
-The Pleasures of Eating, Wendell Berry

Last week
I went to hear Wendell Berry
read from selected works
(some poems, a story)
and speak on issues dear to me.
It was heartening
to see so many people gathered.


  1. my goodness...this looks amazing. I bet wendell was fabulous.

  2. I see mushrooms, cheese, and pastry. This has to be good. Wonderful quote. I've read Berry's poetry and prose. He seems a very interesting person.

  3. Wendell Berry is, quite perhaps, one of the greatest minds of our time. So delighted to see we share enthusiasm for WB *and* a good quiche.

  4. That looks delightful! Great quote from a great voice of academia.
