The Week contest: Moldy meals
This week's question: A Maryland man spent a year eating food past its expiration date — including year-old tortillas, 9-month-old yogurt, and moldy butter — in an effort to prove that those dates are arbitrary. If Scott Nash were to write a cook book full of recipes for outdated foods left in the back of supermarket shelves, what appetizing title could he give it?
