This could be interpreted as a symbol for his dissatisfaction with Elizabeth because she is not good enough. It could also represent that their relationship lacks the spice that he craves; the spice that he received when he “sweated like a stallion” with Abby. Due to the way that he enters and decides almost immediately that he wants to taste the stew and season it, we also receive the impression that Proctor has probably done this before, therefore it is possible that he has not been pleased with Elizabeth for a long time.

If Adam is not such a genius at bread baking, Bourdain will not hire him, but the results of Adam’s work are amazing pieces of crusty art created perfectly every day that Bourdain has ever eaten. In fact, Adam is lazy and always drunk, that makes him not capable to do anything. It makes Bourdain is so upset, but kindly gives him chances over and over again. Bourdain also uses paradox to demonstrate Adam’s fundamental truth. Bourdain uses expressive words that are really harsh and intense, such as “dirty, megalomaniacal…” indicating the horribleness of hiring someone like Adam to work in his kitchen.

The pleasures of eating In the article “The Pleasures of Eating,” by Wendell Berry talk about the responsibilities that we, as consumers have in food consumption. He criticizes modern American farming and rural life as well as the ignorance of consumers. In his article, Berry mentions several ways of what consumers can do to become more responsible eaters; however, because of the hurried lifestyle that most Americans, including my family, live today, is difficult to support Berry´s suggestions.
