The movie, “Babette’s Feast” was on television this morning. My husband woke me up just in time to watch the food scenes. How did I miss the Blini pan? I’ve seen it 20 times. I was playing the movie in the kitchen last time we plated up the dinner? Oh how my life would have been easier if I had bought a few.
But this quote from General Lorens warms my heart every time: “This woman, this Chef has the ability to transform a dinner into a kind of love affair, a love affair that makes no distinction between the bodily appetite and the spiritual appetite.” Amen. My goal every day.
