If the restauranteur has high standards, expects perfection from the people around him, and has cannibalistic tendencies, it's best to stay on his good side to avoid becoming the main ingredient of a special dish.

"Salt of The Air" - Charles Goodwin explains the process of air curing meat in salt to a police officer investigating a fired waiter who went missing.

"Swine of The Earth" - A new chef discovers that taking shortcuts in preparing Charles Goodwin's signature swine dish has lethal consequences.

"Honey of The Fire" — Charles Goodwin prepares a special honey flambé dish after catching his wife spanking the barmaid in the restroom.

"Rice of The Water" — A rice distributor eats sushi as Charles Goodwin complains about the quality of the recent shipment and the rude delivery driver.

The four 500-word flash stories were first published in the Elements of Horror anthology (Elements of Horror Press, April 2010).
