Before food blogs were everywhere and instagram and facebook dominated the landscape sneak peaks and behind the scenes looks into restaurants were few and far between. When Anthony Bourdain dove into a meal at The French Laundry he shared what many wanted to know. It was culinary voyeurism.
Today I was reminiscing on the segment that ran on The Food Network. We had recorded it on VHS. We, well I, watched it too many times, looking for details and insights I had not experienced. In the land of instant that we live in today we spend so much time creating new and now. We don't rewatch. We retweet. We don't reread, we skim at best.
Revisiting the video for the umpteenth time, well closer to hundredth, brought an old smile back to my face and reminded me the importance of appreciating what you find.
