On Friday I described the reactions I’ve witnessed of babies tasting ice cream for the first time. Their eyes light up and it’s as if they are reassessing all the possibilities presented by the planet where they’ve just landed.
For comparison, here’s a Russian girl tasting her first falafel. Do you see the light in her eyes? Granted, falafel is a more complex, more mature kind of taste than the blunt goodness of ice cream, but it’s enticing nonetheless.
Ah, those two forbidden fruits: sweet and deep fried… They’ve probably killed more people than all the wars combined…Yori Yanover
