Don’t forget to decant your essence of unicorn

Andrew Taylor - Spud Fit | April 29, 2021

You are not enough and you never will be unless you can keep a constant stream of Instagrammable mouth-parties flowing onto the taste buds of your family and friends. You must always push the boundaries of flavour and presentation, constantly extending yourself and your skills. Never let go of the wow factor. Do more. Take it to the next level. Buy this new recipe book. No this one. And that one over there too. Get this new kitchen gadget and this new tool to make that other gadget even better. Learn this new skill. Run all around town to find that exotic ingredient.

Lock the kids in a padded cell while you slave away in the kitchen, religiously following all 39 steps to a tee before realising that everything is ruined because you didn’t decant the essence of unicorn yesterday.

Take a moment. Breathe. Do ten squats.

Food is hard because their business model depends on it. If food was easy then you wouldn’t need their books and their gadgets and you wouldn’t watch their shows. Food equals love and delicious, mind blowing, fireworks food equals even more love. What’s more important than love? Do you love your family and friends or not? Will that be cash or card?

Enough. Free your mind, your time and your wallet by opting out of all this nonsense. Choose a few delicious, satisfying favourites and put them on high rotation. Have staples ready so your meals can be on the table in record time. Use your new-found time and brain space to play with your kids and have great conversations with your partner. Read a book or go for a walk in the park.

Food is food and love is love. Let’s not confuse the two.
