Happy New Year and what Cooking is all about

And this is what it's all about, when your love for food rubs off on your loved ones!

Why do we cook?

Well I do because for me it's all about giving and sharing, in one word love.
I love to experiment with the flavours and see the look of enjoyment on people's faces when they eat.
I have to confess that a lot of the time, I don't eat what I cook.
Some of it takes so long to make that by the time I sit at the table I have lost my appetite. Still I revel in watching others enjoy what I managed to create most humbly. Im not a chef, not even a cook, I just like to give, I like to share.

And thats what blooging about food is all about too. Sharing this love for giving and appreciating the most important things in life.

So when I saw my 6 year old, patiently and lovingly crushing ameretti biscuits for the Mascarpone cake, I just knew I had achieved something this year. That little bit of love rubbed off on him!

I would like to share my best wishes for a very happy New Year and leave you a taste of some of what I will be publishing...stuff I have cooked over the holidays.
