Another Window

I see blogs as windows into other places, other lives. And a new window -- one that I've been hoping for -- has just opened. My very good friend Louise Langsner has begun a blog called The Garden Kitchen -- " a blog about food: growing, foraging, cooking, sharing, enjoying. It’s about adventures in the kitchen…alchemy, discovery, amazement."
Louise is one of the very best, most creative cooks I know.  We've been friends for over thirty years and I've enjoyed many an incredible meal at her house. She has a way of combining unexpected ingredients that is nothing short of genius.
Louise cooks for the students at Country Workshops and seems to be capable of conjuring up a meal for twenty without breaking a sweat.  She's also a dedicated gardener and her cooking is informed by the wonderful fruits and vegetables grown on the Langsner farm. Her first post, inspired by a recent trip to Italy, describes the cucina povera of Puglia and Southern Italy.  

If you like to cook or to read about good food, if you enjoy gardening, if you want to look through yet another window, hop over HERE and meet my extraordinary friend Louise!

Vicki what a glorious new blg, alas I won't follow as I don't follow via email (my email currently has 45 unread emails...and they are the work related ones that have to be read!!)
I will follow her from your blog rol though!

Vicki, you need to tell Julienne she can still follow on her dashboard or reader, just use the "ADD" button and type in the blog address.

Thanks for flagging this excellent blog, Vicki. I've forwarded the link to my daughter, who is a keen cook.

What could be better than gardening, growing, cooking and eating.
Thanks for the pointer, I shall go and visit now.

Thanks to all of you who've visited and left comments for Louise. I remember how lonely beginning a blog can be -- I went for months with zero to few comments.

I will head over there. It has been quite some time since I've added any blogs to my reading, so maybe this will be the one!

I agree with your point of view :blogs are windows into other places, other lives.
