Sometimes it’s about food. I really, really like to cook for people. I think for me it’s largely socio-cultural. Being from the US, and from “the south,” I like to cook. If there is one thing that is definitively “southern,” it’s making food, good soul food, for anyone and everyone, all the time. It’s how we socialise, it’s how we meet, it’s how we see our family, it’s how we mourn, it’s how we gather. It’s a fourth of July BBQ, a Thanksgiving feast and an Easter spread. So, having spent my first 3 decades living this, I can’t help but keep living it now that I have happily relocated to Bristol!
My colleagues usually bear the brunt of my need to entertain with food, since my current place is generally unsuitable for having dinner parties and the like. Overall, though, I think they are coping admirably with the random onslaught of food goodies.
