“There is no love sincerer than the love of food.” ― George Bernard Shaw
And this love (unlike the conventional kind) will never fade away. You will never break up with, or divorce food! Regardless of the circumstances, it is a bond that will never be shattered.
What do you do when it has been raining (or so it seems) for 40 days nights and 40 nights? Look for the first available Ark, or barricade yourself in your abode and start a sinful relationship with your fridge?
I have no doubt that when the present Deluge will be over, many people will discover with horror that their waist size has increased by one inch or two. For food is the ultimate comforter… and it is difficult to fend off its solicitous embrace.
“Life is a combination of magic and pasta.” Federico Fellini
When it rains, I usually turn on my computer and try to shrink my vast collection of pictures. But when I do this, I will inevitably come across some food pics which might tempt me to visit the fridge.
For I usually document with photographs the great variety of dishes that I have sampled over the years. I never eat large portions, and with age, I have become more selective, but my love for food never faltered. It is a holy covenant made years ago between Jacques Pepin and me.
After I started this selection process, I suddenly thought that I should share these pictures with my audience. So, I picked a few photographs illustrating my various encounters with food, and if you are inclined, it might inspire you to duplicate some of these dishes.
“After a good dinner, one can forgive anybody, even one’s own relations.” ― Oscar Wilde
PS: enjoy the pictures
