this past two weeks

have been frantic
but with great eats
The week ended beautifully, as I had lunch with close family friends. I understand that with all the achievements of other people, there could never be anything as fulfilling as your own. The list of things created/awarded by media, judges or critics, somehow, should be reflected upon an individual’s understanding. What is best for the whole world might not be suited for you.
As much as I admire the discipline in kitchens and avant grade (molecular gastronomy) used in cuisines, I question the need as human beings to enjoy food in such spectrum. While at the end of the day, we go back to basics of a humble apple pie, fresh dolloped of whipped cream and a cup of herbal tea for dessert. It is simply luxurious to dine in such accomplished eateries.
Save a special date, dress charmingly, bring pleasurable company and appreciate the food. I always believe, good people should pair with good food, or else no matter how great the food is, your companion might just spoil the meal with their ill-mannered character.
Less is more. For now, I’ll be taking pride in modest food and close companionship. A new perspective to mull over this weekend.
