My five-year-old daughter has declared that ketchup is “spicy.” She prefers foods in shades of beige. Her ideal dinner rotation would be something like chicken nuggets and peas, cheese pizza and peas, plain udon noodles and peas, tater tots and peas, and ice cream and peas.

As a mum who was once a food writer, one who heads straight to the spice section at local markets while travelling, one who delights in bold flavours and daydreams about them long after finishing a meal, I can’t help but wonder: Where did I go wrong?
