I like TV, and I like food. Occasionally, I will write about both. With recipes!
So I realized this morning that today is Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday — the day before Lent begins, where you get to stuff your face without reproach because you’ll be giving up those vices for the next 40 days. And when it comes to religious observances, art imitates life quite a bit. You’d be surprised at how many TV shows use food frenzy as a plot device, whether it’s slapstick with characters fighting over something tasty, or food as a destructive force.
