The joy of food
A good friend is never easy to forget, and it wasn't surprising that many of the little daily things in life would trigger memories of the times we spent together. What was surprising though, was how often food was the said trigger - walking past a restaurant we ate at together, walking past a restaurant we had planned to eat at together, seeing one of his favourite dishes on a menu, or even trying an altogether new dish but thinking how much he would've enjoyed it.
As food bloggers, we spend inordinate amounts of time scouting out newest dining places, experimenting with exotic ingredients and attempting to master that intimidating celebrity chef recipe. Let's never forget, though, how much the pleasure of eating is derived from the company around us, dear friends and loved ones whose smiles, jokes and friendship add more flavour and joy to eating than anything we can create.
G - we miss you.
