Gently Agitated






Not an original recipe – a long way removed in fact,
nor implying cupidity when it comes to taste; there’s
a lot, pumpkin risotto arises bare-faced as a foodies
next pennant goddess. It might’ve initially been that
amazingly liberal application of parmesan – or squid,
broccoli, peas, corn and carrots belatedly liberated
upon an unashamedly bold original or the machine’s
faithful talent in preserving such grand integrity


Then there’s us with our antediluvian roots attached
to the same space gently agitated by steaming – it
works needless to say; success in the end due to an
indefatigable belief nothing part-cooked is wasted if
warmed again paid handsomely, now flavours play
enhanced roles where textures tried to run awry
