Dessert of the Real

  1. Oh lovely, tell us all about it. So, E & J Brandy, is it? And you made one pie and then showed some egg whites ‘in stiff peaks’ and some ‘buttery yolk mixture’ so you could make it look like a Cooking Show? which you would then use in a second pie? er whut?

    • I neglected to say that I think being reduced to Cooking Class on what is otherwise a serious Marxist bleug (since Kenoma doesn’t believe any other kind exists) is very Zizekian, and shows a giving into this kind of TeeVee-like unthought that just wasn’t the case when I was much younger and people rilly went to Fire Island as well as worked with tenants who weren’t getting proper repairs from their landlords.

      Thank you.

  2. It’s mince pie, no bottom crust, no beef — walnuts, raisins, cherries, cranberries, prunes, apricots, apples, lemon, spices. The buttery yolk mixture (with brandy) and the stiff peaks together became a sauce for this pie. While the whites added some body, they diluted the flavor of the sauce a bit, so I think I’d leave them out next time. Of course I served without criticizing the sauce, and it proved to be an excellent dessert. I entertained no Marxist thoughts whilst cooking, nor fascist either.

    • “I entertained no Marxist thoughts whilst cooking, nor fascist either.”

      That is a fascoid statement!

  3. Because I actually own it, I am able to have my pie and eat it too. The mystifying cooking-show image remains pristine and whole even as the real pie is already half consumed. In making this pie I controlled the means of production according to my ability and shared the product with others according to their need. OTOH, only my immediate family have shared in this particular wealth. The words describing the pie? Well they’re only words after all, an ideology of pie which, as far as the reader knows, may have nothing whatever to do with the really existing pie. But what if they do? What if the real pie contained the real ingredients corresponding to the words assigned to them? And what if the real 3D pie looked very much like this 2D imagic simulacrum of pie? Welcome to the Dessert of the Real…
