Today’s post is about a gluttony we indulged on to gain some strength and block that hunger that surprised us during a beautiful but intense session of cooking and taking pictures. If you follow us on instagram or facebook, you might know that last Saturday we had a mini incuQIna reunion in London and enjoyed a day together cooking and testing recipes for the blog that we then shared at dinner with some friend.
And as often happens with good ideas, the best recipes are surprisingly simple.
Take couple of slices of bread, and toast it in the oven for couple of minutes until golden. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt, drizzle with some good extra virgin olive oil and finish of with some classy decadence adding some thin slices of quality dark chocolate.
Close your eyes, give a good bite. Enjoy the crunch of the bread, the moist and intense taste of the oil, be surprised by the chocolate, softened a little by the warm bread, and the delicate contrast to the delicate salt. What does it make you think about?
To us, It reminds of far away afternoons spent playing in the garden, when we were kids and we’d fall and we’d scrape our knees. It reminds us that eating is good and goes along with eating together and makes us smile. And if we look more closely at the geometries of the chocolate on the bread, it somehow remind us of some of the work, also exposed in a beautiful room of the Tate Modern, from a “certain” Mark Rothko
Let’s smile, friends, and have a perfect snack.
