One of the things I LOVE about cooking is that cooking a meal is one of the most personal things you can do for someone.
The speciality of a home-cooked meal is the feeling of abundance it provides. Everything you have and need is right in the front of you within arm’s reach.
The fragrance of garlic, the crackle from the skillet, and the sight of a perfectly roasted bird coming out from the oven…. DIVINE!
I love visiting Farmer Markets – reminds me of my childhood when I used to spend my summer holidays at my Dad’s work (he used to work on a farm), sitting on the tractor amongst all the different vegetables.
To date, I’ll still ‘smell’ the tomatoes before I buy them, their fragrance reminds me of walking through the glass-house at the farm where my Dad used to work.
Cooking speaks to all of my senses. It’s a joy I am so proud to know!
