One of the most popular pictures I’ve put up on Instagram recently has been one for Homity Pie. Strange name.
In his book ‘Bills Basics’ (which I thoroughly recommend), Bill Granger says that he stopped eating meat when he was in India, because the choice of vegetable dishes was so vast. Having recently returned from India, just in time to beat the worst of the Covid-19 madness, I know exactly what he means.
The Dad’s Onion kitchen is on the move! In just a few days we’re heading off to India for a holiday, and as well as all the wonderful sights and experiences, I’m perhaps most looking forward to the food and the opportunity to get some ideas and expand my repertoire.
Every cuisine has its distinctive dishes and characteristics, and it’s partly that variety that fascinates me and no doubt keeps us all interested in food. As with music, where I am constantly amazed at the different ways of putting eight notes together into something unique and new, so it is with cooking and the different ways of combining ingredients. Each cusine not only seems to have its own style but also borrows elements from other nations as people moved around the earth and made contact with each other and new ingredients over the ages.
