Food Matters

"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 na�ve, or Van Gogh, the impressionist. Plates or pictures of sunshine taste of happiness and love."
- Keith Floyd, in 'A Feast of Floyd'
