Meanwhile Back At The Blog!

I have been somewhat quiet for the last few days brought on a by an excess of people and things requiring my attention! Needless to say I will be back shortly with a new recipe!

We were greeted recently by the devastating news of the sad occurrences in Paris, and as a country I consider to be my second home the reports were both shocking and heartbreaking.

I am not going to launch into a political tirade here about who or what is to blame, but it never ceases to amaze me the depths our fellow humans can sink to.
When there is so much beauty in the world and so much to be thankful for, why can there not be more love and tolerance among us?

A willingness to learn and the practice of acceptance of others, regardless of their religious or non religious or political views, is something we should all aspire to.

A wise, great chef once told me that the day I stop learning is the day I should stop being a chef........and thankfully even after thirty years I am still learning.

Almost every week I come across some new foodstuff, a new type of fresh produce, a new method of combining flavours, or a way of cooking something, as in all things in life we should be humble enough to say that we don't know it all, that we are not always right in our version beliefs, and no matter whose side we believe we are on, remember....... there are always two sides to every story.

So to my beloved France....les pensees et les coeurs en sont toujours avec vous
