Food Porn Fate

By Kay Steiger

This weekend I chose a picture of this delicious-looking tiramisu for the Daily Food Porn. Little did I know it would turn out to be predictive.

Last night, as the snow began to fall here in D.C., Ben Miller and I went with his parents to Red Rocks — some of the best pizza in D.C. I was stoked for the house-made fennel sausage on my pizza. Soon, three pizzas arrived and mine wasn’t among them. At first I thought it was just because that was just because that was all they could carry up the narrow staircase. But minutes dragged by, pizzas started to get cold, and the table next to us got their pizzas. Something was clearly awry. We asked about it — something about a ticket getting cut off so the kitchen never got the order — and finally it came. Delicious, as always.

But at the end of the meal, our server gave us an apology in the form of delicious tiramisu. It was light, fluffy, and delicately flavored. It was a pleasant surprise and the first time I’d ever had dessert at Red Rocks. Weird how coincidences work themselves out sometimes.
