Earlier we let you know that Bon Appétit’s very own Delmar Crim was on Sunday’s installment of Storm Surge of Reverb, the WESU show hosted by Hunter King ’08. In case you missed it, you can listen to it online, courtesy of archive.org.
Hunter: The song “Spunky Onions”. Would you say that onions are, at all, spunky? Have you ever encountered a spunky onion?
Delmar: Funky onions, but not, uh, spunky, per se.
Hunter: OK, yeah. I can imagine some funky onions.
My favorite part is when Hunter asks Crim if Bon Appétit has plans to expand into outer space:
Hunter: And you know, we’re moving into the future… Do you think Bon Appétit has a potential market in space? Or, do… how do you see the future of space food?
Delmar: Well, we like to think of ourselves as a green company, and I’m not really seeing a lot of a green connection. But, uh, you never know, it might be applications for handheld microwaves at that point, there wouldn’t be a lot of people out there to irradiate. And uh, it’s you know, refrigeration wouldn’t be a problem, obviously, you know. I guess all your worry about methane gas and garbage and post-consumer waste, everything would kinda turn into pretty little meteorites. So, I guess you’d have to rethink the way you thought about that.
