A wise man, possibly Aristotle, once said, “He who is a fool enjoys pizza after 2:00 a.m., but he who purchases said pizza and then places it in the fridge to be enjoyed cold the next morning is truly enlightened.”
If you’re being honest with yourself, there is a part of you that agrees with this. It’s okay, we’re right there with you. I, for one, love many foods cold, either as much or even more than I do when they are properly heated. For instance, sometimes super spicy foods, like curry, are even more enjoyable when eaten cold the next day as the lower temperature provides a bit of cooling relief from the capsaicin. Additionally, as fat solidifies when it cools, certain dishes, also like curry, take on a more cohesive and decadent consistency after sitting in the fridge.
You might shake your head, shout obscenities or start composing an onslaught of poorly planned tweets in response to my thinking, but I only speak truths, just like that wise man from before who may or may not be Aristotle. Here are 9 foods that everyone needs to admit are much better cold instead of hot.
