Good Things Come to Those Who Wait..

Kaki Fruit

Mum you just don’t understand!’ I’d reply, annoyed when the proverb was offered for consoling an insatiable need for the here-and-now in my teenage years.  Patience is a vertue.

I have been waiting for this Kaki to ripen for a week now. However tempting the orangey glow, I know if I put its flesh in my mouth it’ll be an unpleasant experience. Your saliva dries and your tongue goes furry.  Gross. There is no point trying to create a jolly recipe from the fruit.  If you wait until its ripe the plump jammy flesh is a pure delight.                                                                                        Some things are better left for a while in order to enjoy it at its best, even if its an agonising wait.

About reikiandrocks

Growing up with Southern Italian roots, Turkish best friends and Arabic and Greek speaking neighbours, life was lived around abundant tables in warm kitchens. A love for food and feeding was inevitable. It showed me how all people are the same regardless of language and borders – Una Faccia Una Razza! When I became engaged to a Saracen from Istanbul, his relatives not only welcomed me into their family but welcomed me into their kitchen. For me, food is love. Food personifies the people who you hold dearest and speaks of origins and affections. To cook is to create edible offerings of love. NazarBlue embraces food, culture & photography. But by no means the regular stuff you'll find littering the Mediterranean tourist trail. No, no! I cook food with stories behind each dish. I photograph simple things, but try to emphasis natural beauty in a moment or in a scene. And when I travel I live with the locals for an authentic experience. I adore the pockets of culture from the Mediterranean and beyond in this great city, London, and write about the authentic eateries and events I stumble upon, often by chance. I have also uploaded some flash fiction, for no particular reason other than I love a good story.
