My husband, John, and I love to cook using fresh ingredients from the local Farmers’ Market. We both grew up in Europe – me in Naples and Rome, he in London and Aberdeen. We love to try new things and prefer to drink wines we like rather than those we are “supposed” to like.
It occurs to me that many people are good at making individual dishes, but are often at a loss when it comes to pulling a meal together. Eating should be an enjoyable experience that nourishes our bodies, excites our taste buds, and helps us relax and underlies good conversation.
I intend to post meal ideas, the sources of our recipes – which we often amend in some way. I will talk about seasonal ingredients, encourage you to experiment, and post pictures of our culinary journey.
