What's the usual process for developing one of your posts? Karen: I usually see where we haven't "travelled" to and use that as inspiration. The process of choosing the particular dish to make is based on what is seasonal and personal preference. However, I'm always drawn to dishes that tell a story or are significant to the history of places. Food is so much more than sustenance and whether it's a personal or collective story to tell, the background behind food traditions is fascinating. After that, it's just researching recipes, picking a day to cook, playing some music to cook to and of course, eating.
