Osa Cookery Book: Crackers

soda crackers

Well, I’m sometimes embarrassed by the simplicity of some of the delicious recipes in the work-in-progress that is The Osa Cookery Book, but as Einstein said, “everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” I’m not sure what that means, however I think, in general, he would have approved of my approach to meal preparation.

I suppose you could make the crackers. A box of 64 packs was sent down to me on a boat and so, happily, in this case I haven’t had to – and I wouldn’t know where to begin.

Ingredients: soda crackers, tomato, salt. Recipe: fairly self-explanatory. Actually, for an interesting variation on this recipe, you could substitute avocado for the tomato . . . or an anchovy, although I haven’t seen one of those for months.

Osa Cookery Book: Sandia

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Keen followers of the Osa Cookery Book will be aware that the unique philosophy behind this growing collection of recipes is less is more. Not less food, of course, but less effort. In keeping with this, I present ‘sandia’. Take one sandia (watermelon) and one knife.  Lay your fruit on the grass and slash it in half. Voila! Eat with a spoon and after the requisite 5  minute pause, jump into the sea to wash off the juice.
