Two orders of Tim Lincecum, please. Extra caviar

May 19, 2010, 1:25 PM EDT

There’s a fun article in the New York Times that has almost nothing to do with baseball. Rather, it’s about how big time chefs smoke a lot of marijuana and how the stoner culture is affecting both the attitude and, in many cases, the cuisine in today’s top restaurants.  I link it here, however, because it details a new dish you can get at the Ritz-Carlton San Francisco if you’re so inclined:

To serve slow-cooked quail eggs and caviar, he places them atop plastic
film that tightly covers a white porcelain serving bowl. Then he fills
the vessel with smoke from grated Japanese cedar packed into the bowl of
a fan-driven bong he buys in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood. The smoke
escapes when the diner lifts a small spoon covering a hole in the

He calls it the Lincecum, after Tim Lincecum, the star pitcher for the
San Francisco Giants who was arrested last fall after police found
marijuana and a pipe in his car.

Sounds fancy. I’m guessing that Lincecum is like the rest of us, however, and prefers a nice Taco Bell run after partaking.

The rest of those horrible stoners, I mean. Not the rest of “us.” Because drugs are bad, mmm-kay?

(thanks to reader, um, man, I forgot his name because I was kind of spacing, who shot me the link in the comments)

    I’ll chuckle if Tim Lincecum throws a one-hitter

    This might be your best one yet.

    This dish should be called “High Heat.”
    Man, stoners are so bad at being clever.

    “Sounds fancy. I’m guessing that Lincecum is like the rest of us, however, and prefers a nice Taco Bell run after partaking.”

    Us? Us?! Don’t include me in your web of abuse and immorality, Craig. I never eat Taco Bell.

    For the honey-drenched mercy of Christ, do not tell Tyrone Squires about this.
