Joyous cooking

I love cooking.  Especially after shopping for fresh produce at the street farmers market.  Buying produce seasonally has been one of the joys of living here.  At first, I had to get used to not being able to get strawberries in December.  Eggplant in May.

The other thing I’ve learned to do, is live without most convienced processed food.  Even a simple thing as canned soup, is not something you can buy here.  And after a bit, you actually wonder why anyone would buy something like canned soup instead of making it from scratch.

Rediscover flavors.  Live more seasonally.  Feel the rhythum of life around you.

How do you experience this in your cooking?
