Day 314: The Big Leaf

Different cultures have many different traditions for “clearing the palate” between courses.

Some enjoy sipping water and then spitting it back out (in a word: yuck).

Others like to ingest and chew a small stick of something, after which they often spontaneously emit flimsy round structures from their mouths.

Still others gravitate towards the chewing of small white seeds (which is fine in theory, so long as you don’t mind seeds that don’t taste like seeds).

Thankfully, part of “evolution” is the opportunity to develop your own (vastly superior) palate-clearing routine to pass along to future generations of grateful gourmands.

Gosh I wonder where my next course is. Of course I had to get the slowest waitress again....figures.

Followed by one final "Big Leaf" full immersion CHOMP to clear all the senses before your next course.
