I am craving gourmet food.

A mixed greens salad with roasted portabella mushrooms, roasted red peppers, goat cheese and a perfect balsamic vinaigrette.

Lamb chops with garlic and rosemary. Or sea bass with a wasabi beurre blanc. Perhaps some seared scallops. Yes, definitely seared scallops so big you need to cut them in half to fit them in your mouth.

And I forgot to start with garlicky escargots in a phyllo pastry.

To finish, molten chocolate cake with homemade vanilla bean ice cream. Or creme brulee with a perfectly bruleed top that cracks under just the right amount of pressure from my spoon.

Just to be clear, this craving will not be satiated by eating yet another disappointing bagel.

Why, oh why have I stopped cooking??
