If there's one thing we know, it's that watching the Olympics works up an appetite. Not the kind of appetite that can be satiated with a cup of popcorn or pile of celery stalks, but the kind of appetite that calls for your extra-large-dinner-plates, for mounds of heaping, cheesy pasta and maple-syrup-dripping-pancakes. Think of it as a favor to the athletes: after years and years of training and working out, they'd be honored to know we're celebrating in the best way we possibly can: with the food of champions.
