My friend, Angela of the beautiful Spinach Tiger blog, lost a brother and a very close cousin to the scourge of Aids. She wrote an exquisite and heartfelt piece (read post) about why she started ‘cooking red to remember‘ for World Aids Day (December 1) in 2009 when I first participated with a pasta and red pepper dish.
When Angela contacted me this week to let me know she was doing it again, I immediately said “I’m in”. Although I have not been touched personally by Aids, I’m honored to show my support to the ungodly number of people and families who have suffered great loss.
Instead of creating a new dish, I decided to highlight some food photos that have appeared on FOODalogue. Red is a very popular color around here. Here’s just a sampling:
Red Fish and Red Corn Salsa
Red Plum and Radicchio Salad
Salmon Ceviche in a Watermelon Cup
Pimento Baked Egg Cup
