Waiting for Good DoughSeptember 19, 2012

Two weeks ago my friend Sam Membrino suggested the idea of brainstorming ideas for a literary themed food cart.  My favorites right now are: Love in the Time of Cauliflower, The Brothers Carmel Matzah, The Anatomy of Melon Cannoli, Eat Braised Dove, Candide Yams, Abalone, Abalone!, and A Sprinkle of Thyme.  

It has since spawned a grotesquely long email chain...here it is in its entirety in spreadsheet form!

  • Your guys aren’t big Henry James fans, I see.

    Never read “Portrait of a Ladle”?

    “The Boils of Poynton”?

    “The Tragic Mousse”?

    “The Asparagus Papers”?

    “What Maize Knew”?

    “The Golden Boule”?

  • Paul Theroux’s “Mosquito Coast” dresses up as Mosquito Toast!

    “Watership Down” clearly should be “Watercress Brown,” portraying a bunny with paws on it’s cheeks, horrified eyes and a bubble above him exclaiming, “Oh nohz!”

    Fun list guys, thanks for the laughs!
