As much as I enjoyed your planet mnemonic, truly the one you should be using is:

My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas.

At least, that's the one in all of our shows here at the Planetarium. :) I'll come up with something original in a bit.

For a long time now I have been delving deeply into the subject of the cuisine of this country.

Reviving old dishes from ancient cookbooks has been my recent, all consuming passion.

Every day I awaken with the inspiration to learn how to bring out the very best from the farmer's majestic offering.

Never have I been faced with such a diverse range of regional specialties to explore within these small frontiers.

Carefully preparing dishes in this style has heightened my sensitivity to its influence in my own past, a self enriching journey.

Ham has taken on a whole new meaning after visiting Savoie, where they hang in windswept mountain paths, and a quiet man wields a sharp knife to plane a delicious flavorful shard of wholesome smoked goodness that melts on our tongues.

Crepes have come to mean much more than stuffed pancakes, now that we have danced to the fiddle in Morhiban.

Onion soup has been returned to its rightful sublime and humbling stature, we honor its perfect simplicity.

Oh how inspiring, the bounty that graces our market basket from day to day.

Kiss the cook, for she comes bearing the fruits of her labor!

Invention comes easy after a laborious investigation.

Nuggets of wisdom are hidden the most unexpected places.

Give me a basket of fresh fare and an hour, and I will give you something to write home about.

You mean:

The Goose Cooked Fast And Our Quick Tabouli Completed Dinner.

Talc Gypsum Calcite Fluorite Apatite Orthoclase Quartz Topaz Corundum Diamond

or, as I learned it in 9th grade Earth Science:

The Goose Can Fly And Other Queer Things Can Do

Although, after Bleu's, why bother? :unsure:

ON GASTRONOMIC EXCESS

First course – not to be confused with an

Amuse Bouche;

Though often not more

Gastronomically pleasing or

Unusual,

Yields one’s palate to the

Adroitness and

Nuance of the chef’s expertise.

Despite

Previously assumed

Excesses,

Reveling or, dare I say,

Languishing

Over a multi-course meal

While sipping

Hedonistically

Alcoholic

Vino,

Expressly

Cajoles

Rapturous

Endomorphs

(And you KNOW FG and I ARE!)

Towards

Experiencing

Dining

Altogether

Tremendously and

In a

Manner which

Everyone

Supposes

Uncouth.

Considering the

Knowledge of more

Formal

Offerings, such as service a la

Russe,

Who can but

Help despise

Insipid,

Chefs who

Harangue their customers

Into believing that

Whatever is placed

In front of them warrants

Loud

Laudation.

Another

Less appropriate

Way in which

Assholes in toques

Yearn towards

Super-stardom --

Be it through

Exotic ingredients or

Tried and true techniques --

Has to be the

Assumption that

Newbie connoisseurs will never

Know the unabashed

Finesse of

Unlimited amounts of

Long Pig.

Trying to remember your winning poker strategy?

Hot Pear, 2 Pears, 3 in syrup, Stuck, Floating, Fused to a Fourth? Scrape Fast, Really Fast.

(pair, 2 pair, 3 of a kind, straight, flush, full house, four of a kind, straight flush, royal flush)

What about simple scientific nomenclature?

Ketchup, Please? Chicagoans Obliterate Franks, Get Salad Veggies.

(Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species, Variety)

Oh, and I wouldn't put ketchup on a hotdog. :)
