breaking bread from hawaii.

"You have no idea how to cook authentic Italian food." My friend Dan Agostini must have told me that a hundred times since I first met him in the 1970s. Usually, I had just committed some unforgivable travesty using onions and garlic in a dish when a Calabrian grandmother would not use either. Or, the ultimate transgression: using Spanish olive oil -- in anything. Some of you may remember my friend Jack Brock, who died here in a freak bicycle accident four years ago. He loved food, especially Mexican food. But he was a stickler for authenticity. If offered a plates of _chiles en nogada_ that did not contain exactly the correct number of ingredients, he would reject it as a fraud. Unlike Jack and Dan, I am not a traditionalist when it comes to food. My general rule is to never cook or eat the same dish twice. I understand traditional cooking. That is how I learned to cook. Abstract artists first must master the art of drawing before they venture down their own path.

I moved to Mexico to wake up each morning to have no idea how I was going to get through the day. Life in Salem was far too comfortable -- almost as if I were existing amongst the walking dead. That type of comfortable. I wanted something more challenging in my life. And I found it in Mexico. This is usually the point where someone asks me if I wanted life-challenging experiences why didn't I move to Havana -- or Damascus. And the answer to that is easy. I suppose I could throw up the old F. Scott Fitzgerald trope of holding two opposed ideas in mind at the same time, but that would simply be cheating. Even though I thrive on the notion that death may be lurking around the next corner, I also like to add a bit of nostalgia to the mix. Some people regularly say that Mexico is in about the same social and economic position as the United States was 50 or 70 years ago. I have no idea how data-driven that observation is, but it has the ring of truth for the Me
