Greeted by Snacks
A couple of months ago I stopped by Tim and Lena's now former apartment to pay them a visit. I really wanted to take pictures of their "bakingventures" while in lockdown. For a period of time my Instagram was filled with Lena and Tim making endless loafs of bread. Sometimes they would make pasta and other days they would make dumplings.
Whatever it was, I knew that I was thoroughly enjoying their quarantine baking journey while I sat at home pondering about the future. I had been lucky to try some of their bread a couple of weeks back, and yes, it tastes as good as it looks.
I arrived and Lena instantly told me Tim had made some snacks (The hospitality heroes that I know never stop surprising me). There I was just taking some photos of Lena's bread while catching and suddenly, Time came down the stairs with two beautiful bruschetta dishes.
You might have to ask Tim for the full recipe. I tried to write it down, but I was distracted by my complete and utter enjoyment of said bruschettas. One had a fava bean parmesan puree with mint, pecorino, chive flowers, and vinegar. The other one had whipped ricotta, marinated peppers and other ingredients I forgot to type :D
Tim opened some wine, while showing me the pasta he had handmade for their dinner later that night and we spent the rest of the "photoshoot" catching up. It was extremely nice. I think it was one of my first interactions with other people outside my "cluster" that involved food and wine and, wow did I enjoy it. I didn't necessarily know where this story was going to go when I started writing it, but what I remembered is feeling so welcomed by both of them. This is what the hospitality industry does and now more than ever I feel truly thankful for them.
So thank you from the bottom of my heart.
