One of my Facebook friends posted in a dither today. She'd asked her children to make tuna salad for lunch and was horrified to discover they'd opened every single can of tuna fish in the house. A supply, she added, intended to feed the family for an entire month! She was beside herself. Can you blame her!?!
Having food (and other stuff) is all fine and good but the tuna cautionary tale reminds us that it's not much good unless we can stretch them. It's easier to stretch food now when we have plenty than to start stretching when things get tight.
So butter your hands and let's start stretching!
Even as I read Michel Roux OBE's autobiography, Life Is A Menu, last month, the thought crossed my mind:
"He won't be here much longer."
But you're never quite prepared for that day. That day was today, March 12th, 2020.
Now the angels are eating three-Michelin star food prepared by one of my culinary heroes, Michel Roux OBE, father of Alain Roux of the Waterside Inn, uncle to Michel Roux Jr of Le Gavroche and beloved brother (though they loved to argue) of the legendary Albert Roux OBE.
