In my previous post I had availed myself of a metaphor which placed me in a kitchen, vigorously removing the seeds from a pomegranate with blows from a wooden spoon, whilst dressed in a white Dior sheath dress and which, not surprisingly, engendered some searching comments, one of which suggested that I might be a mixture of Jamie Oliver and Conchita Wurst and, as such, could make a mint. This missed career opportunity made me reflect on my lack of “mint” and, equally, on my wealth of thyme. Before you, or I, could say cherry tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella on a puff pastry base scattered with small branches of thyme, there it was, on a table in the garden, enhanced by a profusion of lavender in the background and still sitting on the handsome cloth that had carried it outside, piping hot, from the oven . Breathless and dressless stuff.
I like your food and I want a BIG bite of that!
I’ll bag it up now:)
I laughed out loud, great writing and I really like the tomatoes in the pic, very sensuous.
Glad you liked it…:)
Conchita is less prone to bashing about nonsense. More Dior-ish.
There you go….I knew I wasn’t Conchita-ish:)
Perfect story for perfect receipe for perfect summer meal.
Not quite a field, but a nice garden:)
A mint indeed my friend. No question!
Looks scrummy, Conchita 🙂 Now I’m off to eat my tomato and goats cheese salad in the garden, too.
Now I’m envious:)
time rich..and thyme rich
a rich man indeed!
Plenty of greenbacks….unfortunately just aromatic leaves:)
That looks absolutely scrumptious and should never be eaten while wearing a white Dior sheath dress!!
I shall remember that advice next time I’m tempted, Joss:)
“Breathless and dressless”? Now I am shocked!
That’s a beautiful tart though 😉
It is and was shocking:)
I imagine, shockingly good 🙂
You are as good with your words as with your camera!
Oh my goodness Master Wordsmith, that pie is gorgeous! 🙂
It was very gorgeous to eat as well:)
We always have an abundance of thyme. Such a great pairing with tomato, usually forgotten during basil season.
Basil and I haven’t done much this year…yet:)
Really did laugh out loud at that image, although for some reason ia bearded Queen Delia then popped up in my mind, which is a bit scary. Need a glass of wine methinks, with a big slice of that gorgeous tart.
Bearded Queen Delia is pretty frightening….I think I need a glass:)
Very funny and the photo is tasty to boot 🙂
Glad that it did it for you:)
Excellent looking pizza and am now off to check out the post with you in Dior. 😄
…no pictures, I’m afraid:)
No guts, no glory… 😄
It would be gory, not glory:)
Cold day and storms to hit this afternoon – hope you do not mind if my genie transports me to your garden: perchance you will feel like a repeat performance re that beautiful tart . . . actually I can bring some extra thyme along . . . .oh and may I have a glass of wine or two . . . 🙂 ?
Time and thyme well spent 🙂
And this time I had plenty of thyme:)
Tomatoes and thyme are a glorious combination. You seem to have hit the jackpot!
We’re in the season of wonderful tomatoes…at last:)
God – that’s magnificent. Just cut me an extra big slice please.
That’s how I felt when it came out of the oven:)
This is a great blog. Did you ever cross paths with a Keith Floyd during your time with food in the 1980s?
I wiah I had….I really wish I had. Thanks for passing by..:)
This is seriously stunning. OMG. Teach me how to make this.
It’ll have to be telepathy:)
