I always love seeing these – they’re so nicely and lovingly presented, you really get a feel for how much these two care about each other. And appreciating the appearance of a beautiful meal is an important part of subsequently enjoying the taste!


I feel a tad trolled by the fact that the two bottom rolls are not symmetrical with respect to their direction of rotation (unlike the top two rolls). It’s a kind of “can’t unsee” that is Getting Up My Nose™.


But once these end up being eaten and savored… all is forgiven.
