A beautiful lunch made up of buckwheat pancakes cooked with walnuts and spread lightly with my sister’s peach jam. As I’ve said before, I adore pancakes, and especially buckwheat. These browned perfectly, smoothly, and the walnuts added texture. I took a sip of coffee after eating half a pancake, and it was like diving into a Sunday morning.
A moment of serendipity, too, when I turned the page in my magazine and found a photo and little article on salts in the new Savuer. I tore it out and stuck it to the giant post-it on my office door. Salt plays a small, but critical role in this new book, as it often does in our food.
It’s a dark afternoon, threatening snow. I’m off to write more pages.
What little thing is illuminating your day?
