("core" and "fringe" at their best)

Roast maizemeal in a spoon of olive oil together with a chopped onion.

Add water and salt, let simmer for two hours.

Braise mushrooms, add cream and parsley.

Admire the nutritional density!

Dear Sid,

An so began ten and more years of discussion on "core" and "fringe", the final champaign still waiting.

Many thanks and many good wishes.
