A.J. Jacobs and the dietary laws of Leviticus

Typical is this recent exchange I had with a waitress at a midtown restaurant:

“Do you know if the piecrust is made with lard?”

“I don’t think so but I’ll check.”

“Thanks. I can’t eat lard.”

“Allergies?”

“No, Leviticus.”

My two cents

A Book I Can Read!

That’s pretty interesting and cool. I wish I were there at the restaurant overhearing that conversation. I would have loved to have seen the expression of the waitress after her hearing of Leviticus.
