Food is not always pretty, so it's just as well this photo is out of focus. I was at a Yemenite wedding reception (a Henna, for those of you who know), and it was pissing rain outside, brutally noisy inside, and the smokers clustered in the doorway. This created three experientialzones, each equally unpleasant. No place for kids, that's for sure.
The pita was same-day fresh, but the caterer had stacked them before they could dry and crust on the outside. The homogenous, claylike texture was perfect for the prophylatics pictured next to (someone else's) energy drink.
