At a party I catered recently, twelve people sat around the table, talking, laughing and boisterously enjoying one another’s company. It was one of those gathering where the conversation was so lively, it completely drowned out the music.
But when the food arrived at the table and the guests took their first few bites, the room fell silent and we could hear the music again. This kind of natural concentration on the food because the flavours were so captivating is exactly the kind of reaction every cook strives for.
The pleasure of cooking is only half of the equation. It’s the pleasure my guests take in eating that seals the deal for me.
Yours in good food
