It's 4:20 pm. I'm sitting on my floor, watching Bittman on WETA, and getting ready for Misha's visit: apartment is clean, clean towels are bought and breakfast food is in the fridge.
On Bittman's show, the guest was Jose Andres. Bittman asked him how he knew the dessert will taste good, and Jose said "Because I can eat with my brain."
I think that's a great idea: that's how I know intuitively what foods will go well together: it's a gift :)
