Against Preciousness

Here's hoping I didn't scare anyone off with my previous post.

Chances are good that I've succumbed to preciousness myself at some time, but I do abhor it. A lot. I need to remind myself of this occasionally.

Precious menu items especially rankle me. I recall eating dinner in a Manhattan restaurant a few years back and I accidentally ordered a "microgreens" salad: I needed a magnifying glass to find the arugula on my plate.

Don't be precious.

And I don't care from whose dew-kissed meadow you harvested your purslane.


  1. it's gonna take a helluva lot more than that post to scare us off.

    Precious is as precious does.

    Have a lovely, non-precious weekend!
