For Our Consumption
As far as you can, as much as you can—walk in someone else's shoes or at least eat their food. Anthony Bourdain
Like his travels, his path to arrive at humility and hospitality was not the stuff of straight lines. I loved how he leaned in—toward the people behind the place behind the food.
To receive from the other is to freely give one's power away.
To dignify the other.
To humanize ourselves.
Pleasure, yes, and pain between. As ever, we are who we eat with.
Is there anything on this planet more political than food? Who eats? Who doesn't eat? Anthony Bourdain
Good food is very often, most often, simple food. Anthony Bourdain

Democracy is as democracy does as democracy dines.
Anthony Bourdain understood that eating was simply a way of taking the world inside you. James Poniewozik, The New York Times
