When a Man is Small

"When a man is small, he loves and hates food with a ferocity which soon dims."

This is how MFK Fisher, one of the most legendary food writers from the 1940's, starts her essay, "When a Man is Small." She takes us on an out of body journey through the gastronomic changes we go through during various stages in life. From young childish pleasures and dislikes, to the ravishing appetite of youth, and the farewells to those foods we love in old age; which can no longer traverse the ins and outs of our digestive highway.

Over the next few months we will be delving into our first tribute to MFK Fisher (1908-1992). We all have had our favorite delicacies throughout the years, as well as those few, or for some abundant, foods which haunt the dinner table. So we here at Foodie Fatties want to know the foods you love and the foods you hate.

We will be compiling a list of these food items given to us by parents, children and individuals ages 0-50+ years old..... Basically anyone still living! ;-)

Once we have a decent list for the various age groups we will let you vote for your favorite food (good and bad) in each age group.... Then the real fun will begin!

We here at Foodie Fatties have given ourselves the challenge to revamp those foods people love and hate. We will attempt to turn your favorite foods into crazy yet delicious concoctions and those you hate into more bearable.... hopefully tasty meals and treats!

Get ready to see some crazy stuff going on in the Foodie Fatties office these upcoming months! We will document, inform, update, remind, and show you how we create these dishes and how they turn out! Who knows.... maybe there will be some videoing.... a first here on the site! Wish us luck on this adventure! We hope you will join us for the ride!

Till then,
Bon Appetite!
