I bet this top picture made you wonder for a second ... no it's not my secret larder stash ... both todays pictures are from Google Images, an absolute font of photos of every description :-)
I just wanted to ask you something for a change!
Which of these two images sums you up best? Do you like a well stocked, indeed overstocked food cupboard like the one above. With foods for every eventuality at your fingertips.
Or do you prefer the calming, almost sedateness of this lovely little store of foods, that are most likely used to compliment fresh produce that is stored in the fridge. This photo reminds me of Nigel Slater's fridge and larder in one of his television series.
I most certainly used to be the former, with fresh foods alongside and now I feel that I have come full circle to the latter. There's something about the lack of garish packaging that makes the second picture look better, healthier and more calming ..... although I guess you could tip your chocolate biscuits and sweeties into a jar and have them look equally at home!
I might be off to do a bit of decanting ;-)
