TIME AS A LUXURY INGREDIENT
Press pause on the world, and the world will cook. Given the gift of time through heightened isolation and reflection around the globe, more people are cooking than ever before. And the luxury ingredient? Time. Whether invested or saved, it’s being savoured through the discovery of shortcuts, preservation methods, and playing around with how to slow time down even further. Trust us when we say, this is about way more than baking another banana bread.

Skip the full-on sugar rush. Everything we once thought about what it means to be sweet is off the table. Sweetness is being balanced with other favourite flavours—savoury, smoky and heat for an unexpected complexity that’s satiating and often unexpected. As we move away from overly sweet and improvise on reducing sugar, there is experimentation and fluidity in what it means to be “sweet,” whether expressed as a no rules, layered approach in ice cream or salad—sweet notes are intermingled with other flavours.
