4 thoughts on “Like Red Velvet”

  1. I’m fond of Dorothy Allison’s recipe for it (which I published in my AIDS benefit cookbook FOOD FOR LIFE back in 1997), especially her final warnings after the recipe:
    Third Warning: This is not healthy food. It is never served at the Michigan Women’s Music Festival–except for the time I went. This cake is best eaten after strenuous dancing or lovemaking. Never serve after a sultry afternoon meal of pinto beans and greens, or you’ll ruin yourself. Never add chocolate chips. Have some respect for tradition.
    Final Warning: A woman who would refuse a slice of red velvet cake is not someone with whom you will want to get naked. Too much fastidiousness in food generally reflects a similar problem in bed. Testify.
