There is more than the communion of bodies when bread is broken and wine drunk. –m.f.k. fisher

Food, friends and family are one way to celebrate life. Woven together with shared adventures, they become a story.

Since 1987, I have lived with my family in six countries on three continents. During our first years overseas, in Singapore, I discovered the writings of M.F.K. Fisher. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M._F._K._Fisher

Her stories about people, places, and food have influenced and mentored me since that time. Fisher’s imagery weaves food and life experiences with relationships. It’s an important mingling. We are nourished by good food. We are nurtured by friendship and love with the people in our lives. She believed in not simply writing for oneself. Instead, write toward someone, or something, you love.

Therein lies the thread to my own stories. Set in Singapore, Cyprus, Taiwan, Germany, Belgium, France, Latvia, Lebanon, Indonesia, Scotland, Spain, and America, I have tried to connect each one to family, or friends, or to a place where I experienced a moment worth sharing.

  2. I should have read about egg coffee BEFORE pressing my own, to sit and read your blog I am inspired to try tomorrow! Love that Nico and just envisioning him with his confiture and the smile that he ALWAYS wears, is priceless. So happy that you are writing. It is something you do so well and sharing with those who love you is brilliant. I am headed to the farm en famille and will attempt to create Mimi’s stew tonight!! xx
