You know I love food.
Eating and cooking evokes such strong emotions and, often, memories. Some dishes have a special place in your heart.
The taste of a certain type of cake with sprinkles and icing takes me right back to playgroup, before I’d even started school. I can’t eat funghi pizza without being transported back to Lake Garda in 2002.
And whenever I make my mum’s lentil soup recipe, I’m back home with my family, at the wooden kitchen table.
I wrote about the latter in poetry form, and the lovely people at Mishmash – a food blog set on sharing stories and recipes with ravenous readers – kindly published it!

Thank you Mishmash for giving my words a home!
