Roasted pumpkin seeds and agave

With my mother visiting, I am giving her a whirlwind tour in the kitchen, featuring everything from Peruvian ceviche to the agave interpretation of the house kale salad. Despite this elaborate effort to bridge continents and times, I am again reminded of how different the world of my children must be from her world growing up in the 1950’s.

One day I want to seek out that Kodachrome universe of sun-bleached afternoons and endless sugar beet fields, but also what lied beyond: the quays, the old medina in Marrakech and St Pancras long before any champagne bars.
