In our culture, eating outside is reserved for holidays and vacations but if you stop to think about what it feels like to enjoy food out in the open, you might be surprised to remember a special moment in your life. That’s what real food and nature do, they can imprint memories in our minds.
When I was a kid, I would go with my aunt (“Tieta” in Catalan) to the beach in Barcelona for a swim and snack on hot summer days. Still dripping from a swim in the cool Mediterranean, we would bite into a crusty baguette coated with olive oil, crushed tomato, and garlic (“Pa amb tomaquet“, in Catalan). There was nothing more delicious, it tasted like sunshine and love. Food is supposed to be like that every day, and I mean every day.
When we are outside with family or friends, we appreciate every bite not just as food, but as an “experience”. Most cultures would think this so obvious it doesn’t need to be said, but for us, sadly it does.
