Jacob’s Ladder – Day 12

Half way through!

Today it’s the lighting of the fire. (Or in my case the gas.) That first technology that we still use and get enamoured by. The word itself conjures notions of safety, excitement, danger and creativity. From blacksmiths to shamans fire has the air of magic and ritual. But its greatest importance is around the most profound and ignored ritual of all. Food.

Cooking is new for me. And it takes getting used to one its chief ingredients. Time. Cooking has so many different sounds attached to it, which are so often ignored that over the next couple of days I’ll be focussing on the sounds of the kitchen. Smell that sound.
