SPAM is either contemporary and trendy or only for those who don't know any better - or are possibly destitute. Roy Choi and David Chang have admitted to enjoying SPAM. And yet in my banal North American life serving SPAM produces some controversy. Some people will try it, some wont. Considering it's on the shelf at every supermarket, gas station, or convenience store it is both incredibly mundane and contentious at once. Which makes it possibly the most interesting thing to serve at a dinner party.
Would you come to my SPAM party?
