I'm remembering one great meal I had a long time ago in New York City. It was at a deli, and there were dill pickles on the table--I mean big pickles, like there would be bread on the table of an Italian restaurant. But this time, the bread was stuffed with deli meats.

That was long ago, and maybe I didn't appreciate it at the time, and the whole event went pastrami.

(But damn! That had to be one of the best deli sandwiches I've ever had.)

In some culinary situations, the advantages of using aspic are clear.

Weighing an elephant is much the same as weighing a human but on a much larger scale.
