    Creamy Wild Vegan Mushroom Toasts

    While some find peace in the act of cooking, others find cosiness in the eating. Whether you’re one or the other—or both—you’ll get a lift with these delightful recipes of the season. A harmony of colour combines pleasure with calm.

    Blue—the halcyon colour of calm. Visually and emotionally, blue comes to us in a season when we begin hunkering down and snuggling in. Darkness lingers on the edge of daylight and nights are longer. It’s a time to think about “calming” foods—foods that give pleasure and peace.
    Cooking, in itself, can be calming—whether it’s through the hands that prepare, the scent it proffers, or the taste buds it nurtures. And in a kitchen where the action is coupled with delicious smells and tastes, the mood is anything but melancholy, especially when your favourite tunes are playing and you have a glass of wine in hand.
    Calm cooking—from the delicious scent of cooking garlic or sautéing mushrooms, to whisking a simmering soup or tucking a fork into a roasted yam, our calming blue-focused dishes bring new tranquility to your cooking repertoire.
