Here's yet another article by Kurt on the nature of good food, but this one--written over several days in July of 1984--is highly self-referential. There's an extensive explanation of the derivation of Kurt's alter-ego Jose Que, the impact of the Diamond Sutra Restaurant, recipes and examination of the roots of "California Cuisine." He sagely predicts the coming of celebrity chefs, "Both the ink and the electronic attention given to California cuisine in the last few years prove that it is perhaps THE leading domain of cultural, artistic expression. And why not? The arts--the so-called fine and fancy arts--so seldom make the stuff of any real conversation these days."
