I’m a little late to the game, but I’m finally getting into the Best Food Writing 2009 anthology. It’s only been sitting on my nightstand for a few months. If you haven’t checked it out yet, there are some great, short pieces on everything from translating modern Indian cooking to an exploration of illegal, raw-milk cheese. Our of all of the work I’ve read so far (Disclaimer: I’m still not all that far into it), Tim Hayward’s short piece, “Too Much of a Mouthful” caught my attention. In it, he explores the current popularity of oversized portions–particularly in the U.K.
Interesting enough, I was finishing Hayward’s piece as I sat waiting for a friend on the patio of Weezy’s Grass Fed Shed in San Rafael. I’d heard about this place right when they opened from a friend who worked in the area. She boasted that they served Prather Ranch beef burgers for a mere $3.00. I argued with her about the impossibility of that statement, and she assured me that it was true but that they make it all work because the burgers are small.
Great. Perfect. I hate how sluggish I feel after a big burger, so I quickly find a fellow burger lover and we agree to meet for lunch and check it out.
