Pink in February - It’s Pretty Amazing.

 

It’s the month of pink. And what do we love about pink?

Firstly, the fact that there are so many shades of it, from innocent, powdery, baby pink to sophisticated Parisienne pink, to loud and punky.

Secondly, it’s a colour that’s tied to so many famous names.

Barbie made pink her colour from the start. In fact the Mattel’s Barbie pink has even been trademarked – so no stealing! Jackie Kennedy looked great in her stylish pink Chanel suits in the ‘60s And there’s no colour combo in fashion more timeless than Chanel’s dusty pink with black trim.

Marilyn Monroe and Madonna – they both looked great in pink. As does Pink herself also known as Alecia Beth Moore, And Liberace LOVED pink, darling.

Thirdly, it’s always been considered girly and feminine. Although, hang on – what’s this?

But our favourite place for pink is food, obviously.

Ladies’ Home Journal article in June 1918 said, “The generally accepted rule is pink for the boys, and blue for the girls. The reason is that pink, being a more decided and stronger color, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl.” (We’re not making this up.)

But our favourite place for pink is food, obviously. Our summer pink food must-haves include strawberries, watermelon, pomegranates, salmon, taramasalata – and beetroot. Yes!

One of our favourite beetroot meals: mix a bowl of steaming penne with a bag of Natures Garden butternut and beetroot roast. Add a splash of olive oil, a shake of ground salt and, after roasting the beet and butternut, fold it all together with a sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
