By 10

There’s nothing more comforting than turning fresh vegetables loaded with energy into nourishing food. I see the whole process – handpicking the ingredients from the farmers’ market, watching the yellow leaves falling on my way back, the grey sky, the basket on the kitchen shelf, the water breaking into drops while rinsing the vegetables, the first cut, choosing the spices, a sip of coffee, the grey sky, and half of my face mirroring in the window.
