The few days in the run-up to New Year’s are usually a time for reflection. This year, I’m using this time to look forward.
Looking forward to a few lighter meals, to entertaining again, to seeing friends and family, to unrestricted long lunches in pubs, and to generally a bit more certainty.
Like lots of cooks, I appreciate a degree of control. Consequently I have found the kitchen to be a place of solace and comfort during times of extreme uncertainty.
But as optimism and progress slowly triumph over the previous year’s themes of fear and regression, I hope what will follow will be celebrations, parties and gatherings of every size, with lots of incredible food alongside.
As you begin to look forward to visiting others and welcoming guests yourself, I hope you will continue to visit Caroline Feeds as often as you like. You are most welcome.
Happy New Year.
