About the Chateaubriand
Memories are fragile, prone to fade -- it’s a fact of life. But it’s also a fact that memories tend live on and are easier to recall when there is a common thread that is woven through the synaptic fabric, the “gray matter” as it were. With that in mind (pun intended), three Saturdays ago I happened to be sitting on a beach when I set down my book to fish a mineral water from the ice chest when my thoughts strayed to my grandparents. I think about them often but what struck me that day was the vividness of memories and how specific memories stood out – the births, the birthdays, the graduations, the engagement parties, the holidays, the wakes. Then and there it dawned on me, a trued Archimedian “eureka moment” if I ever had one: the common thread through all of these was the incredible, pull-out-all-the-stops dinners that my grandparents prepared for family and friends. The indelible sensory extravaganzas and the interweaving of food, story, ritual, and the odd non-family member that always seemed to make the guest list and into our family photo were burned deep into my cerebral core. A delightful beachy daydream in equal turns both nostalgic and delicious.
