“You drove three hours for a BLT?” I asked. “It was the perfect sandwich!” she exclaimed, with such passion that we all put down our forks and listened, really listened, to her. “Imagine this,” she said in the same tone that you might use with children when you were about to read a fairy tale. “They bake the bread, right there, that morning, so it’s just a couple of hours old. They make their own mayonnaise too, from the eggs of their own chickens. They pick the tomatoes and the little lettuces at the last possible moment, so when you eat the sandwich they’re still warm from the sun... you can’t imagine how good it tastes!” —Excerpt from Comfort me with Apples, written by Ruth Reichl
