If there were a "gestalt of not cooking," this food item might belong there: http://www.theworld.org/2012/05/the-americain-dream/

Apparently it's quite popular in Belgium, but you couldn't get me to try it.

Excerpt:

The filet, however, holds a special place in the Belgian stomach. Pearl-laden octogenarians daintily slide it onto forks in five star restaurants. Postmen slip into one of Brussels’ famed “brown cafes” for a quick filet (and a Leffe blonde, bien sûr) between deliveries. Youthful office workers glide out of sandwich shops toting their Martinos. Roofers and plumbers pull homemade américain baguettes out of their packs during their regular smoke breaks.
