On Emmenthal and Enlightenment

Susan Marek

I love cheese. I love macaroni and cheese. All sorts of mac and cheese. The boxed kind, the frozen kind. The homemade kind. I have never met a mac and cheese I didn't like. As I was feasting on the frozen kind tonight, I had a culinary epiphany of sorts. Spiritual paths to enlightenment are like mac and cheese. There are lots of different types, but when it comes right down to it, it is just pasta and cheese. Could be Muenster cheese. Cheddar cheese. Colby Jack. Havarti. Bleu. The Three-Cheese Mexican Blend. Even American Cheese, although I am not sure exactly what that is. Might be elbow macaroni, fusilli, farfalle, penne. No matter what kind, it's still, at its core, the same thing: pasta covered in coagulated cow's milk, aged to perfection. And it is still going to the same place in every single person who eats it.

Even if you are lactose intolerant, gluten-free, or vegan, I think you can still appreciate the similarities between the universal quest for spiritual enlightenment and the quest for the perfect bowl of mac and cheese. And, of course, I believe the "Big Cheese" him/herself would appreciate it as well. Bon appetit!
