1. Sipping a glass of yellow tail Shiraz as I cook dinner. Wine and cooking just seem to go together so nicely, don’t they? I just made up a new saying … “Once I tasted red, I put white to bed.” OK it’s not Shakespeare but it’s the truth.
2. Discovering a very simple recipe for sunchokes (aka jerusalem artichokes) which involves peeling them, drenching them in olive oil that’s been cooked with garlic for a little while, and roasting them in the oven with sea salt and cracked pepper. Simple, yet delicious!
3. Having a conversation with someone at lunch today about our shared love of avocados. Hey, they have the good kind of fat in them! (And they taste great!)
