    I was just thinking that the 'satiny emulsion' (Oliver) that is Hollandaise must be some sort of alchemy.

    If you can emulsify distinct states into a new and more 'evolved' state, using the ovum suspended in chicken placenta, and acidic malt and oil then... I think you have something akin to eggpotheosis.

    The god-hen.

    Dali:

    " I only like to eat what has a clear and intelligible form. If I hate that detestable degrading vegetable called spinach it is because it is shapeless, like Liberty.
    I attribute capital esthetic and moral values to food in general, and to spinach in particular. The opposite of shapeless spinach, is armor. I love eating suits of arms, in fact I love all shell fish… food that only a battle to peel makes it vulnerable to the conquest of our palate.
    And:
    The Jaw is our best tool to grasp philosophical knowledge. Disgust is the ever present watchman of my table, sternly overseeing my meals obliging me to choose my food with caution.

    I am not my name.
    My name is a signifier
    Created by my parents
    To call me for dinner
    To distinguish me from the others
    In sentences
    To help you refer and describe

    When I don't meet your expectations
    When I disappoint
    Or misbehave
    You can change the signifier to

    asshole

    Or

    Restore
