It’s official: We can start wearing white. In all honesty, though, I started wearing white year-round a long time ago. I carry a white bag all winter, wear white shoes, and even carry white luggage—well, I did until my rolly bag became so filthy that Goyard deemed it unfit to be refurbished and it died a slow death. But I digress. My point is that it’s almost summer. I can’t help but think about barbecues—specifically, how many we will be partaking in, as well as how much barbecue food is featured in contemporary art. I mean, it’s almost a little odd how many hot dogs I have been seeing in museums and galleries. Do that many people wish they were an Oscar Mayer wiener? Truth be known, I have always despised hot dogs. There is something about their scent and the fact that I can’t begin to imagine what they are made of that makes me slightly anxious. My mum says that when I was a child I had a total breakdown anytime they served dogs at a birthday party. To Mr. Dottie’s chagrin, I refused to serve pigs in a blanket at our wedding. He is still bitter about it. We all have something; this is my thing. Even discovering one of the chicest women I know is a hot dog heiress cannot change my mind. I will never eat a hot dog, but it doesn’t mean I can’t be amused by how often they are featured in highly valued paintings and sculptures. Hence, let’s get down to business and shop efficiently for those last-minute barbecue wears, grab a copy of Welcome to Honeysuckle Hill for fabulous summer recipes, review the best contemporary-art tables, see some delish food art, and view the most aesthetically pleasing dogs and burgers.
