Two Forks, Two Knives, One Plate

by Michael Webb

Have you ever watched Lady and the Tramp? If I ask you what is the first thing that comes to mind, you probably would say the scene where they are sharing a plate of spaghetti.

There is no doubt about it, food is romantic. It amplifies the senses and fulfills one of our deepest needs. There are certain types of food that are romantic by nature: chocolate, strawberries and small pastries for example. Then there are foods that are romantic because of the atmosphere: surrounded by candles, elegant music playing in the background, or served on a linen covered table with a vase of fresh flowers.

Who would have thought that a plate of spaghetti could be so romantic? But Lady and the Tramp showed us that sharing one plate is a perfect way to be united with one another. Have you ever eaten off the same plate as your love? How often do you feed each other? When was the last time you shared a strand of spaghetti or a baby corn and ended in a kiss?

Everyone has to eat. But not everyone has to have his or her own plate.
