Grilled salmon with coconut rice and haricots vert

People ask me: Why do you write about food, and eating, and
drinking? Why don't you write about the struggle for power and
security and about love, the way others do?

The easiest answer is to say that, like most other humans, I am
hungry. But there is more than that. It seems to me that our three
basic needs, for food and security and love, are so mixed and mingled
and entwined that we cannot straightly think of one without the
others. So it happens that when I write of hunger, I am really writing
about love and the hunger for it, and warmth and the love of it and
the hunger for it...and then the warmth and richness and fine reality
of hunger satisfied...and it is all one.
