Had some of the best hummus ever this weekend at Oren's Hummus in Palo Alto with @kirasolveig. Got me to thinking.
  1. Assertive yet gentle.
    In flavor. In texture. In tang. I like a hummus/man that effortlessly takes me to heights of culinary bliss and otherwise.
  2. Unafraid of tahini.
    If you don't like tahini, it's over before it even began.
  3. Unflinching in the face of bitterness.
    Balanced hummus plays with the edge of bitterness, a flavor that Jennifer McLagan calls the most dangerous in the world.
  4. Olive oil drenched.
    Need I say more?
  5. Hearty.
    Forget passive, puny hummus. I like thick but not dense, creamy but not palatally challenging. A hummus/man that shows up.
  6. Flush with herbal overtones.
    Whether garnished with parsley, cilantro, basil, or mint, a good hummus/man should know its way around a garden.
  7. Looks like this.

    Plus Ryan Gosling. The end.
