We do lots of talking, here and elsewhere about “bad” food and “good” food. We all put so much — too much — emotion around eating wrong and eating right, almost as if we were trying to replace our puritanical zeal for pure souls with the same passion for pure foods, pure bodies. I want to use the occasion of a small lunch with my dear Parisian friend, Catherine, to put a word in for hedonism. My pals know I eat carefully, to keep diabetes at bay, but once in a while I order exactly what I want. Yesterday, at Aperto on 18th Street in San Francisco, that was salmon ravioli in a cream sauce made with preserved lemons, with tiny grilled asparagus pieces on top. Pals, if you’re gonna be “bad,” make it good! It was divine. Truly. I can still taste it. Those preserved lemons in cream were nothing short of magical. The salmon, light and gorgeous, wrapped in lovely handmade ravioli. Today, I’ll have to move a bit more to make up for it, but the memory of that sauce will sustain me through every step. You only have to look at Catherine’s svelte little shape to understand that she, who adores chocolate and all things delicious, is a great role model: eat wonderful food, not too much, and when you can, at a table with someone you love who can enjoy it with you.
