Somehow I missed this until now: predicting World Cup results by a nation's food. Fish & Chips (England) will play Caldo Verde (Portugal) next, though the match I'm looking forward to is Sauerbraten (Germany) vs Matambre (Argentina). I know sauerbraten is delicious but matambres (rolled, stuffed, baked or grilled flanksteaks) sound good too. Who will win the meat showdown?

But also I thought it was odd in Buford's piece when he mentioned dessert being a modern concept. That seemed wrong to me
