always love to read those "man-on-the-street" columns in my local
newspaper. It seems that frivolous questions rather than weighty ones
inspire far livelier and intriguing responses. In the same spirit, I
collar friends, relatives, and total strangers to ask them inconsequential
questions on culinary matters.
Q: What's the oldest thing in your fridge?
Jennie (via email): I looked deep into the fridge and I believe I've located the oldest item: the last few inches of a very large batch of homemade teriyaki sauce. I'm not sure how long it's been in there, but undoubtedly more than two years.
