Since my trip to Morocco and more especially Peta's culinary adventure in Marrakesh, my relationship to food has changed. Food and I were enemies. My kitchen seems now an adventurous place - a place to grind spices and herbs and produce delicious food to share with friends - or just for me.
I heard an Indian woman being interviewed on the radio " I add the spices and when the food smells right I cook it". Tasting food yes - but smelling it?? That is new to me. I do it now. I use my senses when preparing food. The brightness of colour of fresh vegetables, the snappy crunch, the smell of the herbs and spices, and the taste. Learning to live in the NOW! How good life is.
