I googled “the Art of Food” and I found Alisa Barry’s wonderful blog on – surprise surprise, THE ART OF FOOD.
Clearly I was meant to find this for her most recent post is “Cooking for the love of it.” She says cooking is “an altar of artistic expression.” I have always felt that was true as long as I had a least a bit of time and some nice ingredients. Since Alisa Barry has said it so well – I have quoted her words from her blog. If you are a foodie, and love the Art of Food then I would recommend her blog, it is elegant and full of yummy words, tips, and recipes.
Here are Alisas words: “
This past week a dear friend needed some serious TLC. …
It also reminded me why I love to cook. It’s an offering and an altar of artistic expression. It’s a way to soothe the soul; a delicious salve that can heal all kinds of wounds. It’s how we connect with those we love and recollect those we miss. It is, above all, a way to nourish and nurture us wholly, whether we’re the ones who are putting the meal together or savoring at the table.
For a few days after my visit to stock her fridge, my friend sweetly texted me about how she loved the flavors of the dishes I had prepared. In those few words, I felt her strength regain and her spirit revive. I’m convinced that intention is everything. Food tastes good when good goes into it. Good ingredients, good loving.
I’m hoping we won’t have to wait for another event like this to get us sitting down to share a meal together. Life is short and time does indeed fly by. No time like now to enjoy with those you love. “
For me she has beautifully tied up and wrapped in a lovely gift box – The Art of Food. ♥ Yum!
I could not help myself. Another side of the coin for “The Art of Food.” This is too fun to be left out.
