Socca pizza for the soul
I spent a very happy evening with Megan Kerr last night. We talked about food and gardening and bumble bees and bonobos, and she cooked the most delicious gram-flour pizzas and I admired her arts-and-crafts home decor. She is definitely a domestic goddess!
Her easy no-wheat pizza-base recipe is here. I'm determined to give it a go - if I can ever raise myself from the level of "open packet, microwave contents" ;-)
Getting together with other writers is really important. We inspire each other. We all find each other daunting, of course, and we worry that everyone else is more talented/hardworking/lucky than we are. But the really great thing is to be among those who understand what it feels like to be a writer, which is sometimes an odd and lonely state. So I'm grateful for evenings like this - and not just for the pizza!
The really weird thing is, all her family think I sound Australian...
