Mad Men, Housewives, and Grocery Stores

Since we’ve been on a kick about TV shows, food references, and their relationship to the book we’re reading each week, I thought I’d add this Mad Men clip.  I think it really speaks to a lot of the issues that Deutsch brings up in the latter chapters of her book.

    I love this clip very much since it really points out well part of Deutsch’s argument. But I had no idea about what the “rumaki” was, the one Betty introduces it as a dish from Japan. So I googled and I found this site.

    The name itself does not make any sense. I guess maki is a roll, as you probably guessed so, but I cannot guess what the “ru” itself comes from. It could be “le maki” ?? Have anyone heard of this dish before? But it is still so interesting that there is actually a recipe apprearing in the Betty Crocker’s 1967 cookbook.
