It is a game changer—rain–sometimes subtly but other times, demanding, even over the top.
Rain piques my curiosity–keeps me open–alert for possibility. A rainy day recipe has its own ingredients–if not unknown not as familiar so uncertain and like all recipes, each time yet to be proven.
The sound of rain is like no other; yet, it, too, may be drizzled, whipped, or pounded. Every day, of course, is its own recipe but rain is its own section.
Rain shifts our perspective, whether it is wanted or unwanted. There is a tang to a rainy day, a spice hard to ignore.
Chef Thomas Keller said, “A recipe has no soul;” we “bring soul” to the recipe.
Perhaps the sound of rain allows us a bit more soul, a little spice we would not otherwise have tasted.
