The most important thing isn’t in the image.
This entire experiment got started with the rice. I cooked salmon fillets for my kids.
But because I have been watching “The Mind of A Chef” extensively, I had to do better. So the salmon got cooked in butter, shallots, pepper, salt and water.
What was left over when I took out the salmon was such a delight of umami without being bitter or too fishy that I decided to slow cook rice in it.
The point is: I made something new today.
I know I thrive if I am seen and I make something. I can check that box today, with gratitude.
I also realised I can organise that for myself, everyday.
How did you fare today?
Thanks for the sensory shock and inspiration, Anthony Bourdain, Edward Lee & Francis Malmann.
I see you.
