The Banana Banquet: Description

Constantin and Ana came over for an all-banana themed meal, only a month after I finished reading Rich Cohen’s The Fish that Ate the Whale, which is about Sam Zemurray, an immigrant in America at the turn of the century who later wound up running the largest banana import company in the world at that time — now called Chiquita banana. Because the banana has a history of appearing in comedic roles, I felt an important part of representing the banana was to name the courses after whimsical banana-expressions.

Here was the menu:
