"Bacon is the candy of meat."

Something to ponder

During these dark days of winter, in this quiet time between Christmas and New Year's, it's nice to have a weighty philosophical question to consider.

If you had to choose, would you pick the slices of roast duck to eat right away, or a container full of rendered duck fat, for use in bringing glossy ducky dishes for months (OK, maybe weeks) to come?

I thought of you on Christmas Eve, when I was waiting with my sister at the butcher in London. In addition to being able to pick your fowl from the selection hanging in the window, you can buy a tin (large, like maybe 2 pints!!) of Goose Fat. Only in Britain! We also bought sausages and "streaky bacon" which we had for breakfast on Christmas morning. Best bacon ever. Ever. Allen & Co., Mount Street, London.

I'm all about the instant gratification. Gimme the roast duck!
