All this time at home leads to reflection. No?
I love food. It’s essential, yes, but so much more. Satisfying, nurturing, comforting, creative, exciting. Food is all that for me.
Food and wine has been comforting the last few weeks. We’ve eaten our favourite breads, slathered in cultured butter and drank some of our best wines. We’ve even indulged in desserts.
I miss restaurants. Especially with a table of friends. All that laughter and good cheer.
But I also love to grow, shop and prepare food. I love to shell peas, shuck corn and sauté onions. So staying at home’s not all bad. With a well stocked pantry and cellar and more time for cooking, we’re not suffering but I can’t wait to hear the clink of glasses as we share again with friends and family.
So what have we been eating and drinking?
