Revive the senses through feel-good food. Just do anything food-wise, no matter how small, that makes you zing: pour hot water over fresh herbs for a fragrant tea; buy a whole organic pumpkin for a kitchen table centrepiece; thank a farmer at a farmers' market; put your hands on warm earth; spot a local rosemary bush; snag some for your lamb roast or your hair (Why not? Go nuts!); and comment to share your feel-good spring snippet. If stuck for ideas, mine are yours. Let's unite in support of feel-good food and ethical food practices. Thanks to all too who supported my Spring Feel-Good Food Project. I had a blast! While my food interests are diverse, so is my food writing history (and lifestyle freelance writing and corporate writing, yada...). Please see below right and my new FoodLit Website. Yeah! Please also subscribe for occasional food-fuelled news, ventures and opportunities.

Do You Know The Arnott Family? Day 64, 27 To Go ...

I don't either, but if we did know the family who grew these veggies, their farm and their story, our roasted beetroot and  pumpkin soup would taste even better because it'd be infused with story. 

Food we've nurtured to fruition in our backyards tastes better too, not only for its peak freshness, but because it has story, a known history and sometimes adventure

Food sans story is bland. Lifeless. Story tastes good. So does adventure and, as the gleaners out there would know, smugness is particularly flavorsome. 

Taking it a step further, stolen fruit tastes better still. Please masticate a while on this little story I wrote. 

And please share with me any great food finds you've made.
