  • Whip me!

    April 9, 2009

  • ". . . Do you like cooking, Phil?" "Not really.

    I can't abide its cruelty."

    "Cruelty, Phil?" "Right—you don't merely

    Pop corns, you beat eggs, wilfully

    Stone cherries, whip cream, chop and skewer,

    Are happier when cheese is bluer—

    And then there's batter, rack of lamb,

    And squash and mace. . . ad nauseam.

    No. Violence and exploitation

    Of co-comestibles would be

    A sin. My conscience troubles me

    With delicate denunciation:

    Far better not to cook, and starve

    In purity, than baste and carve."

    – Vikram Seth, The Golden Gate, Ch. 8, stanza 12
