Sometimes it's the simplest, tiniest things that can make the biggest difference. You know, those sudden 'aha moments' when you realize that something you'd been taking for granted suddenly has the the power to totally change the game.
A long time ago I had a beautiful friend who was an amazing singer and also, a fantastic cook. I remember her telling me that singing and cooking go together. At that time in my life, while I knew I could sing, I didn't yet know that I could cook. ...
Many years later, I discovered that, yes... I could cook and not only that, but it was a great source of joy and a wonderful compliment to the process of song writing and composition.
In the gentle rhythm of chopping or mixing, tasting and stirring, a space seems to be created where ideas bubble up from a deeper source; where lyrics suddenly flow and ideas spring up from nowhere.
This blog collection started off as a present for a dear friend - just for fun. For a while it remained secret, it's presence known to only a few while I experimented to see whether I might be able to write recipes and make photos! Now, I've decided to share this celebration of 'all things delicious' with you all and hope you enjoy!
A bit like my own music it doesn't really adhere to any particular 'genre'. It's simply a log of things I like and have fun with. Inspired in part by the things going on in my garden, the movement of the seasons and my newfound love of photography, I really have no idea where it will go. However, like the creative process that governs everything else in my life, including my cooking, the path will be revealed.

I woke up one morning to see tiny dewdrops glistening on the flowers in my snowy garden. What better song to match this moment than 'dewdrops fall' - enjoy!
From a tiny dew covered bud shivering in the snow, to a fully opened princess... here, my crocus lotus!
