Focus on something delicious. Serve us your best dish.

Ready to roll? All you need to do is…

  • Write a new post on your iBlog in response to the prompt.

Need more ideas? Not sure what to write around Dish?

  • What’s the best thing you’ve cooked this week? Tell us about your meal — the food, the company, the setting, or anything else you’d like to focus on.
  • If you could go anywhere you wish (and money were no object), where would you go, and what would be the first thing you’d eat there?
  • Many of us have powerful memories of a specific dish from our past — something not even the best professional chef could recreate. What’s yours?
  • Share a photo of the next meal you’re preparing, and teach us how to make at least one thing shown in it.
  • What’s the one ingredient you would never be able to live — let alone cook — without?
  • Feeling poetic? Write an ode celebrating a dish you love.

The Replacement Brother

Suppose you have a brother named Jimmy whom you love very much. One day, a crazy magician kills Jimmy, but then instantly replaces him with an exact copy. This copy is the same as Jimmy in every way, including implanted memories of the past. Would you still cry over Jimmy’s death?

According to Plato, you need not, because the copy reflects the form of beauty in the same way. Would you accept the substitute and love it just as you would the original? According to Plato, you should love them equally well. Many find this answer strange and therefore reject Plato’s theory.
