Isn’t there something about sitting across from someone you love and watching them eat spoon after spoon of something you cooked? Doesn’t your belly twist a little with delicious pleasure knowing that something nutritious your hands created can pull out a smile, a sigh of satisfaction as the food travels towards the belly?
On the other hand, how special do you feel when your mom or sister or best friend places a steaming plate of spaghetti in front of you? That someone actually sacrificed anything from minutes to an hour on their feet; slicing, frying, pounding to prepare a dish for you? That’s amazing.
#SmileWithMAGGI is reminding you that cooking is an act of love. Feeding and being fed by the people you love is more than a physical act of nourishment, it’s soulful as well. It’s asking, “Can you taste the love in every grain of rice, every crunchy carrot?”
Whether the jollof rice stands one-by-one or the dodo is slightly burned, we should never forget to celebrate these mothers, fathers, friends, siblings, lovers that are making us smile through good food.
A few of your favourite food enthusiasts will be sharing some of these good food moments with us – moments where they have shared laughter and happiness with family or friends over food. Because there’s nothing better than a smile to give all healthy meaning.
It’s easy to join. #SmileWithMAGGi is the hashtag. Tell us what good food moments you’ve shared with family and friends! Who are the people that make you smile with their good homemade cooking?
