Mika cooked lunch today with fresh vegetables that the neighbours brought over. Vine ripened tomatoes, aubergine, celery, onion.
I came in from the studio to the rich fragrance of the simmering sauce. Tuna, spiced salt, slowly reducing over a low flame.
Steamed rice, grown on mika's parents farm, glossy and fragrant.
I helped by adding "Shiso" from our own garden to finish as a garnish.
"Ratatouille." she said, rolling the word luxuriously round her mouth. Simply delicious.
