Fast (floral) food
Just recently I've been hooked on Jamie Oliver’s 30 Minute Meals programme (love fast cooking) and I got all inspired to be a bit more experimental in the kitchen (have to work harder on point 2 of my '2011 to do' list folks).
I have a similar style to Jamie when it comes to cooking which involves making it up as I go along, not measuring ingredients (a pinch here, a splash there...) and generally flying by the seat of my pants to produce something that tastes (hopefully) great based purely on concept and instinct.
I just don’t have as much motivation though which is very sad. However I’m feeling a surge of interest (again) to make a more concerted effort in the kitchen and I think salads are the way forward - to go with my carrot and ginger soups (yes, I have a really expansive repertoire).
Love the flowers in the beetroot and cottage cheese salad he put together which aired Monday night here in Oz. If it looks pretty and is simple and quick enough... ;-)
