Love emerges intact from the edge of night the poverty of winter behind us now the disparate particles coalescing into what we once were coupled in our nature I who am still warm with love and you who have grown distant and cold
I let you go I bid you farewell make no attempt to restrain you My love is yours to reject yours to regret for the rest of your life
I cannot bind you to the memory of Tooley Street nor the dusty roads of Paris nor to the easy give and take of our salad days Though the mornings have grown silent I say go go to be whomsoever you need to be go wherever you will
Did you think that the moon would fall at your feet or that all the earth’s rivers would run dry ? In my eyes I hold the courage to observe your departure In my wounded heart I await your return
My version of the big chain’s sousvide eggbites. This bacon and mushroom bite has a little cream in the mix and was cooked for an hour in the sousvide. Comes out perfect every time. Ideal for breakfast or if you’re on the run, it offers a little portable pleasure on the palate.
2 free range eggs 2 cooked slices of bacon, chopped 2 large closed cup mushrooms, chopped 2 tablespoons of double cream salt and pepper to taste
Whisk 2 eggs with cream then add the chopped ingredients together with salt and pepper.
Pour the mixture into two 50 g jars with screw caps. I used two empty paté jars, properly cleaned.
Finger tighten the lids on the jars. This allows the air inside the jars to escape when placed in hot water, preventing the glass from cracking under pressure.
Place the jars in a sousvide water bath set at 78 °C for 1 hour.
Carefully remove from water and consume immediately or store in fridge once cooled.
Love too is a work of the imagination it constantly seeks new forms of expression in order to remain fresh to keep the present alive and not simply trade on the faded past
It can be brash and outspoken and have real attitude since by its very nature it’s gestural more in the manner of a de Kooning or a Pollock than a Titian or a Raphael
Yes I want all of you the sweep of your strokes across my body your hair falling into my eyes my face drowning in your tears of laughter your precious hand gripping on to mine as we hurtle down the roller coaster moving from the darkness into the light
