the inspiration issue

Do you rememberthe first time something you tasted made an impression on you? Food, by its nature, has its roots in culture, in the things our mothers, fathers, grandparents and friends cooked – and still cook. The experiences of our youth (good and bad) resonate in the eating of our adulthood. As we grow up, learn new things and travel, inspiration comes from other sources: from places we visit, trying dishes that assail, tease, please and sometimes challenge our taste buds. Combine tantalising flavours with sunshine and a view over sea or snow-covered mountains, add laughter and good conversation around the table and the pleasure is heightened. But equally that happy memory can be a solitary one, sitting alone eating a bowl of the sweetest, plumpest mussels in a bustling café,…

1 Book… …tickets to see The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, out on 20 April. First it was a bestselling book and now it’s a film, with cast including Lily James (right), Matthew Goode and Penelope Wilton. It’s a (fictional) story of life on Guernsey during the German occupation in World War II (not fictional). Times were hard and food was scarce – hence the potato peel pies. It will be interesting to see how the book’s format (a series of letters) translates to the big screen. 2 Read… …First Catch: Study of a Spring Meal (£16.99; Hardie Grant) by rising-star chef and food writer Thom Eagle. There’s a slew of books that plough a similar furrow, but not to the standard of this collection of cloth-bound musings. The topics he…

STAR EMAIL SUBJECT: Less is more FROM : Genesta Gunn How inspiring it was to read Julian Baggini’s article “When ‘just saying no’ is a wise move” [March, p36]. Every year I give up sweet treats for Lent and am often quizzed: “I didn’t know you were religious” or “Is it to lose weight?” My reason is always the same: to reset my body and appreciate things. It’s too easy to nip into a coffee shop and leave with a cake and a drink with no thought that a treat has now become an everyday thing. During Lent I cook more, make my lunches and appreciate the luxuries. The bad habits do sneak back, but when I ask: “Do I really need this?” most of the time the answer is no. SUBJECT: No myths,…
