While driving down Highway 1 along California’s Central Coast a few weeks ago, we came across a little town just south of Cambria, named Harmony. Now, when I say little, I mean "population 18" little. This 140-year-old town has quite a history, but seeing the town sign got me thinking about the word "harmony," and how it applies to life.
The Webster’s Dictionary definition of harmony is "a state of agreement or completeness in the relations of things or of parts of a whole to each other." This definition holds the secret to success in families, love, music, and food.
In life, we want harmony with the people and things around us, and the more harmony we can experience, the more fulfilling and content our lives will be. In cooking, we want harmony in the flavors, colors, and textures because it adds to the overall eating experience.
Harmony in food nourishes our bodies, while harmony in life nourishes our souls.
The more harmony we have in life the more sated we will be in the end... same goes for a good meal.
