Balance of flavour, different ingredients all having a certain characteristic about them, marry each other to create something beautiful, enticing and mouth tingling.
As i folded the dough and mixed in my additionals, i was listening to works of Richard Clayderman, Mozart and Beethoven. That divine music just transported me.
That wet dough and that romantic music made me feel meditative and at peace.
It healed all my scars and my soul. It stirred my imagination and left me feeling invigorated and satisfied. All the weariness just melted away. As i get to work in the kitchen in an attempt to create a masterpiece. It ignites and electrifies me and leaves me excited and full of spark.
Playing around with ingredients, experimenting and creating. Amalgamating different textures and flavours!
The tingling tastebuds and the fireworks of flavours in your mouth !
A burst of citrusy freshness complimenting that herby , tea like , piney flavour of rosemary, perfectly combined with the sweetness of those green olives.
That tartness of the rasberry, cutting through the creamy luxuriousness of that chocolate, mixed in with some cream cheese , baked and drizzled with some sea salt. there go the fireworks!
I enjoy developing my palate, making it sensitive to various flavours, whether bold and full of body , or soft and subtle, just a hint, but making all that difference.
Different sights , sounds, smells and flavours !!
Exactly like the musical notes, treble and bass cliff. Creating different moods, some romantic and happy , some mellow and hushed leaving you blue .Some are full and vibrant while others just leave you warm inside and wanting more.
Because a human is a complex molecular structure made up of many layers and textures. Full of feelings and aspirations. They have different aspects about them and they play soo many various roles.
For in the words of shakespere,
“All the World’s a stage and men and women merely players. They have their exits and entrances, and in their life they play many parts’
Peel off each layer and you discover a part of yourself you never knew existed. A different person , a different role. And each part is soo vibrant and worth exploring. Because Bold and Beautiful is really underrated.
For life is all about being audacious and daredevilish. Its all about adventure and discovering the undiscovered.
