What is your process for developing a post? I like to cook with the seasons, so I tend to use the farmers' market or our own garden as inspiration a lot of the time. For example, I might see some lovely baby eggplants at the markets and by the time we get home I've usually got an idea of the flavors I want to add to them and then I go from there. Sometime I use cookbooks as the starting point for a recipe, while other times I just use my intuition (and training!). I've always got food on my mind and sometimes I've been known to wake up in the night with a recipe idea! I often stick to tried and true flavor combinations, but I also like to throw in a few little extras to liven things up.
