Spring is coming

The afternoons are already getting lighter by the day and whilst it’s still a frosty start in the morning the sun has a delicious hint of warmth when it does break through! It’s hard to think of warm, relaxed social days just yet but I feel this year will be back to full throttle after a couple of hit and miss years. For most of us 2022 holds the promise of a return to more normal activities and although the weather may still challenge outdoor events hopefully we can confidently plan and have the parties we have been missing.

Last year smaller gatherings became the way to party, and I for one welcomed the change for more intimate, select groups allowing a more playful approach to food. Frequently lead times were shorter, allowing a more spontaneous creation of a menu and what I felt like cooking that week rather than planning a menu a year in advance!

That said, I have lots of lovely bigger events already in the pipeline for this year which we are all really looking forward to. Family style sharing platters are still a favorite and I am in love with the colorful, big flavored Persian food which I can’t get enough of.
