Doe 3 Jane Doe Kim Schwab Comp I 11 September 2014 Summary/Response to Bourdain’s “Food is Good” In his essay, “Food is Good,” Anthony Bourdain claims that food is much more than  nourishment; it also has the power to affect our experience of the world and can teach us about  others and ourselves. Bourdain uses examples from his travels abroad to support his point by  highlighting his experiences with foreign foods that both awoke his taste buds, but also made  him realize the brave, rebellious, adventurous side of his personality. Bourdain continues through his essay to interweave his interest in stories and literature with his experience of food to show  how he discovered something important about himself – his love of travel, food of all kinds, his  adventurous nature, and his passion for literature. Ultimately, Bourdain comes to understand,  “Food had power.” I enjoyed Bourdain’s essay. I share Bourdain’s passion for travel, food, and literature, so  it was easy to relate to his experiences. I loved how he set off his sort­of epiphanies as short  sentences with white space around them. This style helped me shift gears with him when he  segued to another direction. My first memory of food was when I was 5 or 6 years old and my  mom served soup to a little girl she used to babysit occasionally and me. Trying to be helpful, I  crushed crackers into the little girl’s soup. My mom gently chastised me, explaining that not  everyone likes crackers in their soup. I remember a number of different feelings going through  my mind – sadness or guilt for potentially “ruining” another person’s meal, a new feeling of  understanding about what it means to have preferences, and a lesson about letting people take  care of themselves, and another, deeper lesson that had to do with my confusion as to why  anyone would ever eat soup without crackers. I found this completely baffling. I found soup  Doe 3 boring and runny without the salty crispy to mushy texture of the crackers. It wasn’t even a meal  at that point! Who in their right mind would prefer a runny liquid to a thick, hearty crackery  meal?  Stymied, I’ve spent the past 35 years as a curious observer of food and eating differences. I love exploring the culinary differences of other cultures. I’m still partial to the cultures who use bread to deliver the goods – Ethiopians with their pancake­like bread they tear off and use to  scoop up the saucy meaty dishes, Indians with their naan used much the same way as the  Ethiopians, even Americans and their sandwiches. I think part of the reason I prefer these types  of foods is because I think it’s fun to touch my food. Utensils have their uses, but I feel more  alive and in tune with my food when I actually use my hands to deliver it to my mouth. There’s  nothing between the food and me. Like Bourdain, I, too, enjoy doing things other people  wouldn’t try, whether that’s eating exotic foods or travelling somewhere difficult. I think it  makes me feel like I’m having an experience different and more unique from other people’s,  whether that’s true or not. I appreciated the way Bourdain encouraged new ways for me to think  about food, and I thought his essay was entertaining and insightful.
