Food is about color, texture and scent. Meals are sharing with friends, celebrating life and getting together with the family. We make dinner with a side dish of memories. Dining is discovery — the exotic and new. It’s about comfort and familiarity. Being safe, warm and fed. The act of preparing food evokes memories.

Nutrition is good, but food is better. Feeding your soul, filling your heart as well as your stomach. Pills might keep you alive, but they would never satisfy you. Or at least, never satisfy me. Eating is living.

So break bread with those you love. Drop by the pub after work and share a cold something with the gang. Or alone, in contemplation, with a book.

  1. Great I am hungry. I think it’s all about it. I haven Italian soul, I can read through cookbooks for days, it brings me pleasure to cook for friends. Preparing a great feast brings joy to my heart, seeing the people I love eating what I cooked makes me happy. The preparation, the smell, the colors and the presentation…all together it’s just yummy.


  2. I don’t know any other way to exist. It begins with breakfast, continues with dinner which I cook, and finishes with the evening meal that Mr. Swiss almost always prepares. Now and again son No. 2 might drop in on a surprise visit or invites might happen. I don’t like prepared food, like to make it myself that I know what it includes. Not that I don’t enjoy a hamburger or junk food, all in its place and time. If I am on a holiday, then fast food does it for me, but at home, the kitchen is more than a kitchen, it is a room to live in and indulge in composing a food concert.Your tomatoes look so natural and fresh


    • Sharing food, breaking bread, has always had more importance than mere sustenance. In every culture, in all parts of the world. Regardless of religion. No pill could ever replace it nor should it. Until everyone stops talking and we start texting from birth !


  3. And I thought you were away from internet world. I knew and was expecting your post as usual. Very well said. It is true in every sense and your picture convey the massage so clearly. I can’t think of surviving on pills. Food is the essence of life.
