“People who love to eat are always the best people” – Julia Child
If you love eating, you are pretty much my favourite kind of person: I write for you.
I can go for hours talking about, dreaming about, laughing about and planning food. Some people may call it an obsession but if you give it the name ‘passion’ then it sounds a little less crazy eyes, a little more refined. I’m passionate about food.
I can’t remember a time when the love of food was not on my radar but since our daughter (dubbed “Cub” until we met her face to face) arrived in our midst, my cooking creations slowly shifted in the winds. As a parent you yearn to do everything in your power and ability to present the pure and lovely things of the world to your young child. Sometimes you get it, sometimes you fail, but you try anyway. When she started eating solid food, suddenly I wanted to know more about what food I was creating. Where did the ingredients come from? What effect do they have? What is the “best choice” for a hungry, growing child?
I’m still learning, still trialling, still trying to understand an overload of information out there. My journey this far has taken me to whole-foods and refined sugar free. Simple ingredients (even if not always commonly used), simple handling processes, wonderful benefits, incredible taste.
I love the creativity, the depth of flavours and the challenge of producing new delicious dishes for the family to enjoy. And finally I’m finding a place to log my ideas and connect with my favourite kind of people.
Keep an eye out for recipes to flow starting at the end of the week.
