Pasta Lunch

Aw, my lovely son just cooked lunch for me! Food tastes great when someone else goes to the trouble of cooking for you. He made a delicious pasta meal with black olives, broccoli, onion, garlic, baby plum tomatoes and mushrooms – it tasted of the summer! Brought to mind a lovely quote from the only TV chef I have any respect for, the original and wonderful Keith Floyd:

Cooking is an art and patience a virtue… Careful shopping, fresh ingredients and an unhurried approach are nearly all you need. There is one more thing – love. Love for food and love for those you invite to your table. With a combination of these things you can be an artist – not perhaps in the representational style of a Dutch master, but rather more like Gauguin, the naïve, or Van Gogh, the impressionist. Plates or pictures of sunshine taste of happiness and love.”
