Because it turns out, that’s sometimes all it takes to change something everyday into something spectacular. A bowl of plain, dry pasta is rubbish, but add a smidgen of butter and a sprinkling of grated cheese, and bam! Best thing ever. A pile of lettuce is not tempting in the least, but add some feta or goat’s cheese and I’m converted. White rice is boring. Cheesy spinach and garlic rice – amazing.
