Bukowski culinary tastes

Ponder

"So fuck Doubleday Doran"
RIP
I just read that letter.
Red meat, baby, red meat.
And no, George, I'm not going
to post the letter.

No, he says one should stay away from red meat, salt, milk, cream and especially cheese (why milk and cheese, I wonder?).
He's into healthy food by the early 80's and says you should only eat fish and fowl, fresh produce and drink juice, and remember to get all the vitamins.

I believe you read the letter, Ponder! I just wanted george to know what was in the letter without having to post it, that's all.

Cooked his own damn cuisine

Bukowski not only cooked his own damn cuisine, but he was a fine cook, a source tells me. Retired print hack from the SF Chronicle said he visited Bukowski with a photographer to shoot his pic, and Bukowski turned out chicken Sauternes for dinner. Surprised everyone.

That's exactly what I wanted to avoid ;)

Yeah right...

She called me in to dinner. There was salad, iced tea and a chicken
stew. It was quite good. I was a terrible cook. All I could fry were steaks,
although I made a good beef stew, especially when drunk. I liked to
gamble with my beef stews. I put almost everything into them and
sometimes got away with it.

Ha, I thought of that excerpt, but couldn't remember what book it was from. I would like to have tried one of them beef stews, while drunk of course.
