The Spooning and the Fork

An Essay

by Aleksandra Crapanzano

Nice work. I loved the way the author mixed her love of cooking with her jealousy and love of her man. The old adage, "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach," still holds. A perfect last line.

I enjoyed the sensual sound of the different dishes the narrator planned to use to seduce her boyfriend, her attempt to woo him back, and perhaps punish him for spooning with Jade on the Outward Bound trip. The story reminded me of an all-day stew that requires many different ingredients and time before it's ready to be consumed. Well done.

We would love to hear from you.
