Food is more than something to eat. Food is love. Food is culture. Food is life. Food is meant to be shared.
If I eat at restaurants too often, I start to feel disconnected from food. I like to make my own meals. I like watching a bag of vegetables turn into a beautiful soup or salad. I like cooking with people, and watching them cook. People who cook from the heart, without recipes and measuring cups, inspire me.
We’ve cooked many beautiful meals while on the road. And had the pleasure of enjoying many meals prepared by the people who have hosted us. Homemade meals may not always be as pretty as restaurant meals, but they often taste better. There’s a certain satisfaction that comes with making a meal for yourself, or having one made especially for you.
We may be living out of backpacks, moving around every few days, and working with a small budget, but that doesn’t stop us from making meals from scratch. It’s not always the easiest or cheapest option but we make it work when we can. It’s a good day when we have the chance to visit a farmer’s market and buy a bag full of local produce to take back to our kitchen of the day (or week, depending on our host). What follows is always a delicious feast.
During the last three months, we’ve been traveling around Europe and enjoying many homemade meals.
Now, before I overload you with pictures of all the homemade goodness, I have some questions for you:
What do you cook while traveling?
What do you like to make when guests come over for dinner?
What’s your quick and simple go to meal?
Okay, now you can dig in…..
