Mmmm, snacks. The food you eat when you don’t need food. Most definitely beyond sustenance and into pleasure, enjoyment and greed.
I try not to snack too much on a regular basis, but this is less due to willpower than to deliberately not having them around.
Of course all bets are off on holiday. Especially in a city with eateries of all kinds on every avenue.
American-style pies are something I am drawn to. British sweet pies are pretty tame – generally fruit of some sort between two layers of pastry. In America, pies can have chocolate, cream, custard or nuts, and are served in decadent slices. I base this on the charming and unique TV series Pushing Daisies and the movie Waitress.
