How can something so simple brighten my day so much? Purple of borage flowers against the orange of carrots and the green of chives and rocket. . In the background sourdough spelt topped with bone marrow, some red cabbage sauerkraut and two types of local unpasteurised cheese – one with sheep’s milk, the other cow’s. . Everything here is Italian, most of it from less than 5 miles away. The borage and chives are from the garden. . It’s hard to put into words how eating locally and using traditional wisdom in my kitchen makes me feel. It’s something like peaceful, but with hints of deep belonging and gratitude. . Happy weekend all.
