What does the word “done” mean to you? Is it a raw slab of red meat served as is on a plate, or do you like it cooked into a greyish-black oblivion? This week on Let’s Get Real, Erica Wides discusses the concept of “doneness”. Can doneness function on a spectrum similar to autism or sexuality? Erica argues that the amount of “doneness” depends on the person preparing the meat and how they enjoy to cook and eat it. But even though there is a wide range of “doneness” preferences, we can all still manage to look past our differences and enjoy a nice meal together.

“Pretty much all fish should be eaten one of two ways: raw…… or very carefully cooked.” [7:00]

“When it comes to fish, unlike sexuality or personality disorders, there is no spectrum. There is either wrong or right.” [10:00]

“We’re all on that spectrum somewhere, but it’s ok, and we can all still eat together.” [27:00]
