AKRASIA

Akrasia = weakness of the will. I thought I would not make coquilles St. Jacques or rabbit this trip, but when I went to the market today to get dinner for this evening and tomorrow, the Coquilles St Jacques looked so fresh and enticing that I bought 400 grams and made them this evening. A very simple meal: the coquilles, some tiny French stringbeans, fresh tomatoes, and a nice wine, all eaten to the strains of some seventeenth century music. Tomorrow evening I shall encrust rabbit in noisettes and serve it with sauteed courgettes and mushrooms. Sigh. Life is short, but on evenings like this, it seems worth the effort.

Yum! I've loved the Hume tutorial so far (and the others, of course) but a culinary tutorial might top them all.

Akrasia like a fox.
