Ever wondered why strawberries go so well with sour cream? Or how come everybody savours hot soup with bread crumbs? If you ask me, it has a lot to do with the combination of textures and colors. The vivid red strawberries gently diffuse their juiciness into the silky white mass of sour cream. The creamy soup is warm and tender and goes down smoothly until it meets the crunchy crunch bread crumbs and, perhaps, some almost too rough leaves of parsley.
There’s always a contrast in food – color wise and texture wise. And what I’ve noticed is that taste usually follows these two. So if you’re not sure how to match 3 types of veggies, get intuitive with their colors. When you waver whether you should add green lentils or quinoa to your salad, just imagine the textures you’d get with each one of them.
For me, food in a raw state is a continuous source of inspiration. And that simplifies things a lot. There are practically no major mistakes and almost anything can be redressed by adding and adjusting. Nothing like, for example, the meticulous process of baking: there’s not much to be done when your freshly out of the oven dough is flat and lumpy, right? On the contrary, a raw composition can go through various altering processes until you optimize its texture/color/taste. All you have to do is to follow your intuition and learn by experience. And once you get acquainted to how you can CREATE TASTE, you’ll come to discover there are just a few basic preparation processes that cover food in all its states.
The blog’s posts are basically a collection of images and recipes where I gathered simple intuitive guidelines and ideas in an attractive manner. In case you are wondering why there are no specifications regarding quantities, it’s because I don’t really use them 🙂
And I’m inviting you to tap into your own CREATIVE INTUITION, a place where no measurements can stand higher than the natural resources of trust and fun!
