Film critic Roger Ebert on what matters most about a meal


Film critic Roger Ebert has written a moving and intriguing look at the meaning of food and drink on his Chicago Sun-Times blog. Surgery left him unable to eat, but his memories are firmly intact.

Near the end of the essay, he says, "The food and drink I can do without easily. The jokes, gossip, laughs, arguments and shared memories I miss."
