Garlic crab maestro Brittney Simmons had by far the toughest task at The Food Section’s subscribers’ reception this past Saturday. Since she’d last year created a design featuring the newsletter’s initials, I asked her to render its logo in corn.

Since a pencil wearing a toque isn’t a familiar sight, the completed shape served as a Rorschach test for seafood fans, with associations ranging from sacred to profane. But what I saw in the centerpiece of The Food Section’s celebration of its partnership with The Assembly was a promise of more good times ahead.
