Because being healthy pays off when you're old while eating delicious food pays off RIGHT NOW!

An alarming trend has swept across America and the world. As people begin to adopt a new "healthier" lifestyle, they find themselves willing to acquire the dietary habits of rodents and to compromise ingredients in some of the most sumptuous recipes in the world. Suddenly, supermarkets are inundated with items boasting their "fat free" or "lite" quality. Suddenly, everyone is convinced that if they don't cut out the fat and the cholesterol, they will die of a heart attack by the age of 32. Suddenly, people are feeling guilty every time they eat something that actually has flavor...

Repression, however, is the fickle mother of sloppy rebellion. A strong, brave few continue to use heavy cream, butter, rendered fat, salt, sugar, and whole milk. These dissident gourmets have pursued those recipes that represent the essence of "real" cooking. They have scoured antique shops, garage sales, and libraries to find the precious volumes that contain recipes unadulterated by the mindless censorship of the health mongers. They are culinary supermen; they are intractable, generation-x, renaissance men zealously defending a noble cause; they are obstinate guerrillas in a silent war of ideology; and they eat dangerously to defend their beliefs…

Eating dangerously, though, is more than a manifestation. It is an attitude, a lifestyle, a credo that enables each of us to attain daily pleasure. It is a system of beliefs based on equilibrium, a notion apparently forgotten by all those who indiscriminately deprive themselves of pleasure, often, for the sake of unworthy, unfounded, and illogical notions of what is "healthy." Eating dangerously, in essence, is the first step in a process of liberation from unwarranted self-control; it is a philosophy which allows its supporters to free themselves from the unnecessary self-flagellation that society would have them apply; it is a process by which, ultimately, each of us can learn to ignore the guilt that has come to be associated with simply being human. It allows us to find the delicate balance between promoting our own pleasure and preserving the interests of our world and the people around us…

Throughout this website we attempt to provoke and delight you, the reader, with wonderful food and prosaic slices of life and wisdom. Our goal is to help you to help yourself. Free your taste buds and your mind will follow! Learning to eat dangerously with joy and pride will allow you to experience the full flavor of life and, with luck, will lead you to a whole new perspective on living in general…

It is thus, without restraint and with fierce conviction that we urge you to join the fight and make our battle-cry heard!
