The Aphrodisiac Cookbook

Satisfyingly rich. During my summer in Paris, I met a Lebanese man named Kamal. Toward the end of my stay, he invited me over for dinner. Being the na=EFve 19 year old that I was. I met him at his house for 8:00 dinner. A complete gentleman the whole evening, he showed me around his cracker-box apartment and told me about his life as an officer in the Lebanese army. He showed me pictures of his palatial estate in Lebanon. And then he showed the after-pictures of rubble, the war scars on his back, and the letters from family he had to leave behind. He made me lamb and pasta that night; we ate in his kitchen on a make-shift table with daisies he'd picked from his window box. I never saw him again.
