Some people are just naturally gifted. Some in music, some in maths, some in painting and so on and so forth. I think one of the most astonishing talents is to be able to combine flavors, imagine them in your head and seeing if they will work or not. A bit like the Rat in Ratatouille.
I mean, I can taste food and like it, in fact I get my occasional food-gasms from foods in restaurants or even what my father makes sometimes (sometimes). But as far as I know I cannot (or will not) randomly throw together ingredients, knowing it will taste good. I follow recipes to the last dot, and if I don’t I feel secretly guilty.
What I can do, however, is see food (even if it is only a photo) and instantly get water in my mouth. I can see a photo and imagine eating it.
I’m not obsessed.
Well, I once stumbled upon a website that made my heart stop. It showed page after page after page of original, well photographed, well written recipes. Some were easy, some weren’t, some sounded amazing, some sounded as if they were bought from a quack doctor down the street. But they were plentiful and offered hours of mindless amazed staring.
Now, you may have come across the site before, but if you haven’t you should TOTALLY go have a look. I guarantee there will be something there for you. Whether it is home made mozzarella sticks, easy delicious peanut butter chocolate drops or crazy party jello shots. Take a minute and you will spend an hour because damn, it just all looks so good!
THIS is the link to the website and bookmark it, because even if you won’t make any of it just now, you will want to get back to it someday and it will be there for you, waiting, like a warm bed, ready to supply you with thousands of mouthwatering photo’s of food.
Lots of love
