You Can't Have Your Cake

                                                            Cakes by Wayne Thiebaud
Yesterday I heard NEW YORKER writer Adam Gopnik interview Judith Jones, senior editor at Knopf (and champion of Julia Child's cookbook that no other publisher would touch, "Mastering the Art of French Cooking.") Gropnik said that his grandfather's dying words were profound: "You can't have your cake and eat it, too. What does that even mean?" 

Good question, n'est-ce pas?
