Food unites us. Food allows us to cross boundaries. Food defines us, creates us, destroys us. Food is a universal concept which happens to be edible, full of flavours, textures and all those culinary buzz words with a twist, a source of pleasure on the palate, a source of guilt on the hip, an unspoken divine love in the heart. Most of all though food, in all its eating, sharing, cooking, washing up, service, clearing up, and shopping, is beyond our comprehension in how it shapes our lives.

For those of you who want to know these things, I'm wearing a cream long Alpaca dress by Toft Alpaca, the Botticelli cardigan I knitted a few years ago in Rowan yarn, and a now-vintage Georgina von Etzdorf scarf (well, I bought it over 20 years ago from Picketts), my karas (iron and steel bangles) and kirpan (Sikh knife) are from the Clock Tower Bazaar by the Golden Temple, Amritsar, and no shoes ;)
