This summer has been all about minimalism for me. While I take considerable pleasure in imagining culinary combinations, I have been delighting in the pure, untouched,and unmixed just as much.
Avocado – enjoyed several days a week with nothing but a spoon and a sprinkle of sea salt.
Fennel – complexity in one simple food: the lovely smell of licorice, the crunch of the bulb, the intensity of the greens.
Cucumber and tomato – a perfect complimentary pair.
Water – carried with me wherever I go.
Salt and pepper – the classic pair, only enhancing flavor that already exists.
Stone fruit – nothing matches their pure sweetness, right down to the pit.
White clothing – true summer, even on my pale skin.
What are your favorite simple things?
