Foodie Post: Pineapples

One of the things I love about India, is the natural craft and skill that exists.  Even in what seems like the most simplest of things, there is so much skill involved.

It is pineapple season here, and last night as we were walking home, my mother found the beautiful fresh pineapples irresistible.

Whilst the fruit is fabulous, for me the joy is in watching the skill of this man as he peels, carves and slices it for us, all in less than 5 minutes.
