The Creative Process [Nov. 25th, 2009|05:23 pm]
Douglas Spencer
Here's an insight into the creative process in my kitchen:

1. Go shopping. Buy a couple of bits of fish, one of those bags of salad leaves, and a little bottle of Caesar dressing.

2. Get home. Arrange the leaves on a plate.

3. Make some home-made salad dressing (olive oil, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup).

4. Cook the fish. Put the fish on the plate next to the leaves.

5. Dress the leaves with the home-made salad dressing.

6. Look in confusion at the bottle of Caesar dressing stood nearby on the worktop.

7. Shrug. Eat.

The details of the process vary from meal to meal, but the essential structure remains the same.

So presumably your cupboards are full of salad dressing?

Because I live seven miles from the nearest supermarket I shop less often and buy more when I do. As a result there is always, despite taking a list and wandering along the aisles for ages, some important item I forget to buy. Actually it's often salad dressing ....
