Is it supposed to be somehow more personal or accessible or something for the hostess to dress as unattractively as possible and not know the correct pronunciations of her guests and the main things they are going to be talking about?

If you are watching this and you haven't read Sigrid's book Last Of Her Kind, your life has been misspent, your soul is forfeit, and your green beans will never come out right.

That looks delicious. Can you bike me over an order?

The effort-to-pleasure ratio of this recipe is off the charts. I have a hazy recollection of learning how to make it from an Ayun Halliday zine or essay (??) years ago… ground turkey works too, in a pinch, but only if it's the fatty kind (ie has flavor).

Sigrid Nunez, also delightful!
