SPOONING LEADS TO FORKING
I’m adding  food blogger to my resume alongside other niceties you already know, and we may start with a consideration:
The repetitive phases of cooking leave plenty of mental space for reflection, and as I chop and mince and slice I think about the rhythms of cooking, one of which involves destroying the order of the things we bring from nature into our kitchens, only to then create from them a new order. We butcher, grind, chop, grate, mince, and liquefy raw ingredients, breaking down formerly living things so that we might recombine them in new, more cultivated forms. When you think about it, this is the same rhythm, once removed, that governs all eating in nature, which invariably entails the destruction of certain living things, by chewing and then digestion, in order to sustain other living things. In “The Hungry Soul” Leon Kass calls this the great paradox of eating: ‘that to preserve their life and form, living things necessarily destroy life and form.’ If there is any shame in that destruction, only we humans seem to feel it, and then only on occasion. But cooking doesn’t only distance us from our destructiveness, turning the pile of blood and guts into a savory salami, it also symbolically redeems it, making good our karmic debts: Look what good, what beauty, can come of this! Putting a great dish on the table is our way of celebrating the wonders of form we humans can create from this matter -this quantity of sacrificed life- just before the body takes its first destructive bite. This why, on the table, after all them end: “Good appetite”, I invariably add: “Unfortunately”.
spoons
So. Whether you’re an accomplished chef or attempting to make your very first meal, this post is chock full of inspiration to fuel your culinary creations. Here’s my first recipe:
“Spooning leads to forking”
Utensils and ingredients:
1 Chopping board (up to king size)
2 Persons of opposite sex (irreplaceable ..)
1 Papaya (not very wrinkled)
1 Plantain (to taste)
2 Oranges (grapefruit can be used)
2 Eggs
1/4 Dark
200 gr. Stamina
Hugs and Kisses (to taste)
How to prepare:
Get the two Persons into the Dark quarter. Place them on the Chopping board like little spoons in a drawer, leave them mix for 20 to 30 minutes at room temperature and sprinkle the Hugs and Kisses (Oranges are just decorative so it’s recommended to choose the best looking). When properly seasoned, the Papaya is filled with the Plantain and then you should stir the Eggs vigorously for 15 to 20 minutes (that’s where the Stamina is applied) until it forms nougat and get very hard. Once hard, pour the residue into the Papaya and remove the Plantain, or what remains of it. Allow the mixture to stand for 9 months in the oven, and, once well spongy, the meal could be removed and cleaned the mold. If you want another service, let the mold repose additional 40 days before making another.
Note: If you enjoy cooking just for pleasure wrap the Plantain with a plastic cover to leave no residue.
Dear Lord, please bless…oh never mind, even You wouldn’t bless this slop!

Spooning leads to forking – Dugutigui

About Dugutigui

In the “Diula” language in Mali, the term « dugutigui » (chief of the village), literally translated, means: «owner of the village»; «dugu» means village and «tigui», owner. Probably the term is the result of the contraction of «dugu kuntigui» (literally: chief of the village).

    • Dugutigui says:

      Well, this is a blog for all audiences … On the other hand you can see a pan on the floor …🙂 🙂

      • Yes, yes, the pan was what I meant ….😛😆😆

      • Dugutigui says:

        Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind. I changed the picture. No one has ever become poor by giving🙂🙂

      • Oh my God!!!! I was just joking, I can’t believe you changed the picture… I just saw the new picture😀😀😆
        You’re such a genius, but you know it and you enjoy being reminded😉
        Yes, be kind and the world will be kind as well… or not? But it does not matter!!!! Important is that YOU are kind!!!

      • Dugutigui says:

        Thank you, but let’s keep it secret … you know, the audience is wonderfully tolerant, it forgives everything except genius. Let’s say I’m a misunderstood genius. What’s misunderstood? Nobody thinks I’m a genius🙂🙂🙂

      • hahahahahahahaaaaaaaaa….😆😆😆
        ok, ok, misunderstood … so be it…😉

    I must have missed a step in the preparation.
    All I ended up with were some very sticky shoes and an angry cat.

    • Dugutigui says:

      Not that bad … better than ending up with a sticky cat only … hahaha …

      Sticky Cat, sticky Cat, what are they feeding you?
      Sticky Cat, sticky Cat, t’s not your fault.
      [Background singers:
      Sticky sticky sticky
      really bad smelling smelly cat
      it’s not your fault!]
      Sticky Cat, sticky Cat, what are they feeding you?
      Sticky Cat, sticky Cat, it’s not your fault.
      They won’t take you to the vet.
      You’re obviously not their favorite pet.
      Sticky Cat, sticky Cat, it’s not your fault.
      Oh no!
      It may not be a bed of roses.
      You’re no friend to those with noses.
      I promise you, before we’re done
      all the world will smell as one.
      [Background singers:
      Sticky sticky sticky
      really bad smelling smelly cat]
      What are they feeding you?
      Sticky Cat, sticky Cat, it’s not your fault.
      Sticky Cat, sticky Cat, what are they feeding you?
      Sticky Cat, sticky Cat, it’s not your fault.

      10Q for the comment!

    I nominate you for Chef of the year! Haha! :p Bom appetite!

  5. This is a wonderful thought on the idea of ‘cooking’…makes me think about the reversals that we trigger each day in order to induce order in our day to day lives!! thanks for sharing!

    • Dugutigui says:

      It is precisely, if paradoxically, because reversal is in the service of repetition that it gains a subversive power rather than remain a mere dependent (and thus conservative) form of social discourse.
      Thanks for your comment, and for your great blog!

      • The pleasure is all mine!! I like the sound that the name of this blog has!!
        🙂

      • Dugutigui says:

        I believe names have power, even when the menu is not the meal, you know, it ain’t what they call you, it’s what you answer to. But, in any case, I read in a book once that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but I’ve never been able to believe it. I don’t believe a rose would be as nice if it was called a thistle or a skunk cabbage🙂🙂

      • haha…very true…I do partly agree and stand with you on that!!
        🙂

  6. Eva says:

    Very witty metaphors! Hilarious.

    • Dugutigui says:

      Are you referring to the monkey, or to me? 🙂🙂
      Glad to see you around … long time … I understand … your new shift … 24/7 … once you sign on to be a mother, that’s the only shift they offer. Hope you doing well!

    • Dugutigui says:

      Thank you for reblogging my post. This is an attention that I may not deserve. It is not that I’m thinking less of myself; it is thinking of myself less. 10Q!

  8. audrina1759 says:

    Haha what a catchy title. Nice post.

    • Dugutigui says:

      No doubt titles have power, even when the menu is not the meal. As said above, I read in a book once that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but I’ve never been able to believe it. I don’t believe a rose would be as nice if it was called a thistle or a skunk cabbage🙂
