I think my mood inspires my food, almost as much as the season.
Although for me, mood and season go hand in hand. I can't wait for daylight savings to end tonight, so it's no longer dark when I get up to go to work, and dark when I drive home!
This time of year, youth and renewal are my muses. Baby greens, ramps, baby lamb and young capon all make their yearly appearances.
Monday I'm doing a big dinner at work for The Brookings Institute, these things will all be part of it. Which reminds me, must go make the meringues for the dacquiose. That dessert always reminds me of spring too!!
