ALL WORDS OF CULINARY RAPTURE HAVE BEEN STONE, WITH PERMISSION,
FROM BEATRIX OST'S UPCOMING MANUAL FOR LIVING, THE PHILOSOPHER'S STYLE
“In the early ‘80s, there were no restaurants to speak of.
People ate at the golf club, or at home, or badly.
We bought a farm there and I started a jour fixe, to bring kindred spirits together. The evenings at our house became fantastic. People performed acts of bravura, recited poems in their mother tongue, sang, played instruments, danced folk dances, fiddled while unicycling, that sort of thing.”
