Passion for REAL food.

Probably what I miss most about Montreal….Even though I make a pretty good reproduction!  Sometimes it’s just the availability of stuff…To make stuff. Food matters, in Montreal..I mean REAL food. Not just one particular aspect either…It’s HOW it’s prepared, WHAT it looks like, The taste. texture, presentation…Even the most rudimentary kitchen will produce beauty for the senses, if there’s a passion for it. Montreal, at times, like now…I miss your passion for food, because that’s where “IT” was born…FOR ME. (Audible sigh).
