Time for food

Over the weekend I finally got the time to put together and write down some of my recipes on a small paper. This is something I wanted to do for a very long time. Cooking is one of the most enjoyable activities I know. But food is not only a mere pleasure. When in Bruxelles with Mita I saw a poster that said People eating alone die earlier. Every recipe I now have on my paper reminds me of some special persons and some special places: crepes, Stefania in Santa Cruz; pasta Sangiovese, Marco and Giulia in Dublin; pasta alla vodka, Saverio and the rest of the crew in Valencia; Salmorejo, Martin and Anna in Granada; tortilla, Pablo in Salamanca; cheeseburger, Evan and Neel in Tofino; pancakes, Thomas in Victoria; pasta amatriciana, Aaron in Victoria; fried banana, Iris and the rest of the crew in Fanø. 

Blue Rondo à la Turk

When talking about Dave Brubeck, who died this week at the age of 92, I always think of my friend Aaron and our cooking sessions together. I still listen to The Dave Brubeck Quartet every time I decide to spend some time just cooking for myself or for other people.
