No Waffling Here
As he says:
Perhaps a waffle iron in the kitchen — like a pair of Adirondack chairs on the lawn — creates the illusion of leisure that we don't really have. The idea of making waffles evokes images of luxuriating over breakfasts in sunny rooms with clean curtains and crisp Sunday papers. And this new generation of waffle irons is Bauhaus-cool, with lines and finishes as slick and evocative as streamlined trains from the 1920s.He recently pulled out a waffle iron from his cupboard which is old. Really old. Judging from the lack of a registered trademark on it, he estimates that it was made before 1909. And it is still perfectly functional.
They just don't make 'em like they used to.
Easy waffle recipe.
