THE SINGING COOK
“a celebration of all things delicious”
about this blog
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.
