I make no secret of the fact that I love to eat. Food is a celebration. It should amuse all our senses. Taste is of course important, but it should also please the eye.
Yesterday I enjoyed a course of jewel tones. Rich amethysts and emeralds with a taste both sweet and sharp.
A wonderfully ripe fig nestled into a generous slice of herb enrobed goat cheese, perched on a thin slice of day old baguette, broiled until melted and warmed. The beautiful colours of the fig were a jewelled delight atop the snowy goat cheese. Scattered alongside the crostini was a blend of matching lettuces in deep greens and purples.
