On This Date, 28 Years Ago…

Died the great chef Jean Paul Sartre.

A part from the linked cookbook/diary…

November 15
Today I made a Black Forest cake out of five pounds of cherries and a live beaver, challenging the very definition of the word cake. I was very pleased. Malraux said he admired it greatly, but could not stay fo dessert. Still, I feel that this may be my most profound achievement yet, and have resolved to enter it in the Betty Crocker Bake-Off.

By some coincidence, I yesterday watched episode on Sartre from BBC’s Human, All Too Human, available on YouTube (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). (The same person have uploaded also the episodes on Heidegger and Nietzsche)
