My favourite flavour … My favourite flavour … Poetical? Sweet? Romantic?
It’s really not easy to decide for one favourite flavour. I love cooking and everything that this magical world includes – all this is for me something very emotional. Today my favourite flavour is taste. The real one. The lively one.
Every ingredient has many flavours. Many lives. Many faces. I am trying to extract the best side of each ingredient and pair it. Playfully. Because life is a play. And cooking is life.
When I am eating rice with butter and sage, I remember my grandmother. Her fat and warm cooking … Today I am looking for the same butter to feel the same warmth again and again … I am looking for the same flavour. And if I don’t find it, I create it.
My favourite flavour is … love!
