Food is the only beautiful thing you can eat. I don’t know who said that or where I heard it from but I think it encompasses a lot about how I feel about food. It’s beauty that can physically nourish and maintain you your life.
I love food. I love eating food, I love shopping for food, I love looking at food and reading about food and of course I love making food. I also like criticizing food. I’m always excited about the next thing I’ll try, how I’m going to transform some leftovers or that new restaurant I can’t wait to go to.
I believe food can show you care about someone. It can bring people together. It can create memories. It can be fun, nostalgic and bittersweet. Food is so much more than the sum of its parts. It is the thing that can nourish you every day and not just for the fuel it provides your body.
I find cooking and eating to be one of the most pleasurable parts of my day and I will share my musings and ramblings (and sometimes rantings) about it with you.
