Sometimes the most basic food is the most nourishing—not because it is especially nutritious, but because it tastes like home, like memories, like childhood. This simple fish recipe—“truite au bleu” (blue trout)—is prepared with very few ingredients, including lemon and parsley, and served only with boiled potatoes. But it can still make for a feast and in Germany (where it is called “Forelle blau”) is often cooked for Christmas.

The Arabic word كيف [kayf, m.] (sometimes also transliterated as kief/keef/kif) can mean a bunch of things, so this print is about all of them: 1. condition/state; 2. mood; 3. will; 4. pleasure/well-being/good humor/enjoyment.
