I suppose it’s no secret that I find inspiration in cooking. I think it’s because there are so many layers that I find magical: beautiful kitchens and the designs of furniture, appliances and containers, the artful still life of food before we eat, the mix of art and science that creates recipes that are handed down on syrup-stained index cards with hand-scrawled ink, the way ingredients can be versatile and shift from sweet to savoury, mild to spicy, and that whole will-it-rise/will-it-not thing keeps me on pins and needles when I am cooking. So for all the books, magazines and websites who say it’s boring to talk about what you had for lunch on your website, I quietly disagree.

So today, let’s write about food, okay?

    So glad you’re back!
    Starting to catch up on my entries now, and finding some harder than others (Iknow, I know, they’re meant to challenge us…) Looking forward to the rest of the prompts and completing this task.
    Thanks for the push to keep me writing, Shimelle.

    Oh the irony!

    I was eating this very dish about 36 hours before I printed the prompt. Wonder if I can persuade my Mum to make it again?!
