A local cheese platter became the talk of French Quarter last night when the eclectic mix of European cheese and smoked meats was overshadowed by an out of place but none-the-less tantalizing hummus.
During a small get together of mid-thirties friends who now prefer wine, lounges and board games to pills, clubs and actual fun, a selection of nibbles that catered to the roughly 27 dietary requirements of the 7 guests was presented.
While hopes high for Sarah’s smuggled Camembert or Claude’s controversial ethical foie gras, it was Patty’s hummus that caused a group upset by being the most widely consumed delicacy on offer.
Eventually, talk turned to Patty’s hummus recipe which only caused further division amongst the more bourgeois guests.
“It’s just shop hummus,” stated a nonchalant Patty, who has attended enough shithouse picnics to know that even the most budget brand of hummus will steal the show from high end blue cheese and or that pink fish egg shit any day – even if it did undermine the elites who thought this was purely a European-themed spread.
