The Food and Wine Hedonist

Guilty Pleasures – Happy Hannukah!

Happy first night of Hannukah for all you MOT’s out there!

Now for an “After-school Special” moment, Hedonist style…  I was raised Catholic in a not-so-enlightened area, and I was given a lot of misinformation about Jewish people.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like we were raised like mini-Borats, thinking that Jews had horns and can shape-shift.  We just heard Jews were not like us.  It wasn’t until college that I actually met a Jewish person.   It was a wonderful experience to find out they weren’t terribly different, they just had a different religion.  After being raised Catholic and going to a Catholic high school (against my will), I was totally fascinated with hearing about new faiths.  Although, admittedly, it wasn’t the core tenets of Judaism that was the eye-opener – it was the whole not eating cloven-hoofed animals thing.

Anyway, I wanted to do a special Guilty Pleasures post to help you kick off your eight days and nights.  This song is a parody of Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite” which itself is a GP.  Enjoy!

I don't know everything about the world of food and wine, but I'm not going to let a small detail like that stop me from blogging about it.
