Cooking – A celebration!

Standard

The chimney waited daily
For the riot of aromas
The palette of spices
Held on to the shelf with pride
And the apron witnessed
The gastronomic delights
Shaping up from a dough
Shredded into fine chops
Soaked overnight some
Marinated, the others
Brewed, baked, braised…
Each one a masterpiece
Of the heart behind the hands……
And went on and on and on
Daily, religiously-
The chef’s preparations
Stretching-
From the grocery shop
To the kitchen
From the dishes
To the cutlery
A table done up beautifully
A cherry inviting the lips
Smoky fumes
Delighting the eyes
And the tiny belly
Exuding satisfied expansion
Was the trophy
For the perfect celebration!
