Culinary crime #1

There are certain things that shouldn’t be allowed to happen to food. We were at a café, Wild Oats, in Carterton … this was the day we didn’t get fresh black currants. There was a good-looking salmon quiche on display … I ordered a slice for lunch. But when it arrived at the table what had they done? They had microwaved it! Barely edible as a result, and what an insult to the cook. The egg filling turns rubbery, the pastry becomes soggy. Microwaves may have their place, but not in my kitchen. And why on earth people who are supposed to be serving decent food to the public are misusing them, I have no idea. I want to stamp my foot and shout, “It shouldn’t be allowed!”
