My love affair for simplistic food began during a summer's day in Italy. I arrived with the perception of more is more and left with a food philosophy of less is more.
I saw a pizza as it should be a celebration of tradition passed on from generations and a respect for homegrown tomatoes that burst with flavours of the earth with every bite. The perfume of a lemon is inspiration enough and i can see how these fruits are the heart of every european meal.
Coming home, i made a conscious effort to integrate earthy, simple recipes to my family's weekly food repertoire. This mixed berry chia jam adapted from Sarah Britton's My New Roots is a new addition to our menu and embodies all the goodness, simplicity and fruits from mother nature that not only looks incredible but brings my every being to life.
