Salty tales …

My body is back in London, but my mind is still drifting on the gentle swell of the Atlantic — bobbing up and down, up and down in Cornwall. If I close my eyes, I can taste the salt on my lips, the firm flaky flesh of the mackerel infusing my mouth with its oily, smoky flavours. The seaweed-like vegetable samphire glistens, emerald green, underneath the charred skin of the fish, dotted with meadow flowers. The firelight flickers and I bite, drifting back with each bite into a happy haze of memory and taste. Then I am being warmed by hot milk, the spices and brandy biting my throat and percolating through my body. The shivers stop and start and I spin and spin. I don’t know which way is up or which way down, but it all feels so good, it’s warm and spicy and sweet all at the same time. Then I drift further back through a mist of punchy crab chowder and fish and chips, the delicate crunch of the batter, like amber lace shrouding the plump white fish and the satisfying vinegary softening of a fat chip. I glug scrumpy and bite burgers and lick my lips and lick them again. Like the windscreen wipers of a car, lick lick, with each swipe, a new taste comes to my mind, and I remember still more the delicious delights of a long weekend in Cornwall.

Greedily yours ….

I was confused, Mia said defensively.

What do you mean confused? Lizzie replied. The two girls were back in the ramshackle flat they shared in east London. Their place was full of the clutter that both of them loved; bowls and vases collected from Mias travels or Lizzies holidays. Best of all, the flat had a big kitchen-diner packed full of every kind of cooking utensil, and all the herbs and spices that the girls could wish for. The kitchen opened out onto a tiny bijoux balcony where they had packed in as many herbs as would fit in the jumbled planters, pots, and window boxes. The wooden balcony looked out over the dark slate rooftops of east London, not far from the trendy bars, clubs, and markets that made up Spitalfields, and was in the heart of Hackney. Apart from the kitchen, which was the centre of their home, each girl had a bedroom and they shared a bathroom. Lizzies bedroom was slightly bigger as she had found the flat. But the extra size also meant her room had become de facto their sitting room where they generally lounged about when home and relaxing.
