Who’s the kitchen magpie?

18 Jan

Just as Magpies select nice, shiny things to make their nests lovely and luxe, I seek out the tastiest, most exciting foods from all different cuisines to enjoy. Because, quite simply, I love food. I love eating it, and I believe if you really love eating  food then you usually love preparing it, too, as you like to know how such wonderfully yummy things are made. And if you like cooking, you also like sourcing the ingredients you cook with, and instesting ideas on what to do with those ingredients. And that’s where the fun really begins – because the only limit on what you cook is your own sense of adventure.

I live in Auckland, New Zealand. I think we’re pretty lucky in this city to have a large immigrant population. And lucky to have immigrants who have arrived in Auckland and set up shop making and selling food from their homeland. At the same time, as we begin to demand more and more accessibilty to ethnic ingredients, canny entrepreneurs are filling the void with some excellent gorumet food stores. So I feel pretty chuffed with what we have here in the city to eat. There is at least one cuisine that is sorely missing from this line up, though – real Middle Eastern, but more on that later.

Anyway, as I said earlier, I like to eat so I like to cook and I like to cook so I’m permanently on a quest for inspiration and ingredients to take back to my kitchen, my magpie’s nest.
