I love the way people write about food.
Especially in recipes.

twist the peel to express its oils

scrape the fond from the bottom

slice whisper thin

sauté until tender

fold in the vegetables

followed by a generous heap

drizzle half the cream

save some of the plumped up blossoms

bake until very deeply golden

until you get a touch of browning

sprinkle with scallions

spike with a bit of lemon juice

most will be little nubs

it should hiss and sputter

dollop each with cumin yogurt
