Food Love

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.
