Food isn’t something that just decorates a plate or fills up your mouth before being digested. It’s so much more than sustenance.
No, provisions can act as a gateway into something else – a catalyst for a new experience.
I never thought much about the power of food beyond satisfying my appetite until I watched the movie, “Julie and Julia” and saw one of the characters make bruschetta.
It looked absolutely wonderful and I thought, “I could make that.” So I whipped up my own version with yellow and orange bell peppers and cilantro.
Biting into bread all warm with olive oil and covered with fresh vegetables, the results were thrilling.
Plus, it was delightful to see my culinary creation looked similar to what the professional cook created.
Little did I know, bruschetta was the catalyst for a new hobby. Since the first recipe went so well, I decided to venture forth and tackle another meal – chicken smothered in cream and mushroom – featured in “Julie and Julia.”
It was a slightly more complicated recipe than the first and therefore could have yielded much deadlier results.
The stakes were raised even higher since I didn’t bother looking for a recipe; I simply mimicked what the actress did on the TV screen.
