The Comment of the Week
I have to give a shout out to Dante for this fine image, which appeared under the Gino Troia post, as well. EL
In the eternal hereafter, we have levels of Hell for the Italian cooks who “suck” as well as those arrogant enough to point this out to them.
The cooks who “suck” spend their days on a level full of crowded, brightly light converted row house eateries, drinking Chianti out of small juice glasses and feeding each other antipasto and brioche discussing the latest bocce tournament results. All they have to watch are re-runs of “The Galloping Gourmet with Graham Kerr” and “The Frugal Gourmet” with Jeff Smith. All they have to listen to are badly mastered Al Martino albums.
The arrogant sits on a level in semi-darkness and silence, although he can hear the “suckers,” distantly. He has nothing to watch except his own linguini slowly drying out. He dines alone.
