This is what happens when I watch Top Chef after tango practica….
For me tango is like comfort food served family-style.
Comfort food highlights all the ingredients in a simple, no-fuss kind of way with lots of love. To have a really simple, delicious dish requires excellent technique.
Sure I like to eat at fancy restaurants every once in a while. I might marvel at the presentation, amaze at the garnishes, and ooh at desert but I can’t eat it every night. It would be too much, get too old too fast, and would feel too external for me to enjoy it.
Wrap me in comfort food served tango style any day.
