I have been mulling over coming up with a cookbook combining art and food. Two of my favourite things. I know I spend more time painting than cooking, however, as I have said before, I love food. You would think my obsession with both, would leave me fat and sloth like, but surprise surprise, it has not. If I gain 4 pounds I whine to a friend (who by the way, contributes to that 4 pounds with wonderful sauces) and start jumping up and down in a state of panic. I swear they want to hit me with their cooking utensils. I thought painting the illustrations to this book of edible delights would add even more of a thrill to my existence. Yes, believe it or not, I do actually have a very full life. Anyway, it would not be paintings of cooked vegetables and the like, but paintings that would relate to each dish. So, I have begun. I must confess that over the years I have been invited to numerous gatherings where people have said "bring something". I have always said that I can't cook. There was a method in my madness. If you say you cannot whip up something wonderful , no one expects anything but a purchased Crusty French Baguette from the Grocery Store.
P.S I still love KD! Perhaps with more sophisticated ketchup's. I have much more refined tastes now.
