Men go for the center, women for sides?

I was quite interested to note that The Anatomy of a Dish is organized the way it is: starting with sides, in effect, and then moving on to the addition of proteins. In a way, this supports the theory stated above.
But what does each of you really think of that theory?

Great question, and Suzanne is summarizing it accurately from my recollection, too.
Some time ago, we had a discussion here of a possible difference between the way men and women order in restaurants. The basic premise, as I remember it, was that men order a dish based mainly on what the center-of-the-plate is, whereas women base their decision more on the accompanying sides. (Sorry, I could not find the thread now.)
