Rita and I have been friends for several years even though we live in different countries--me from the U.S. and she from Canada.
In fact, when tornados were roaring through the Dallas area, and the sirens were blaring, I came in to my office and read several posts from Sage Cuisine to get my mind off of the insanity that was going on around me!!
She says on her blog, "Food is my passion and instead of a novel I much prefer reading a cook book, recipe book anything to do with food. I post once a week about things that make me Happy. I am a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and a friend to a few special people.
Family, memories, food, recipes, gadgets, chefs, cooking, restaurants, herbs, markets, travel etc. will be my focus. Rita"
I agree with Norman Kolpas who said, "Food, like a loving touch or a glimpse of divine power, has that ability to comfort." So does this website. Filled with excellent quotations, travel memories, sweet graphics and delicious recipes, this is one you'll love.
You will find posts about such things as Paninis and Daffodils, Food for Thought, and A Surprise Visitor. Be sure and scroll down to "older posts"...there is so much there to love!
Another lovely aspect of this blog is the people who follow Rita. There are 202 of them and they are from all over the world. Here are a couple that I liked:

Sage Cuisine and many of its followers adhere to Fernand Point's marvelous quote where he said,
"If the divine creator has taken pains to give us delicious and exquisite things to eat, the least we can do is prepare them well and serve them with ceremony."
