This statement entirely sums up my feelings about cooking. Every day is something new, every day could bring a brilliant discovery. I’m never bored: if I’m not trying a new recipe then I’m playing around with an old one. There’s always a new wine/food combo to try. Each season brings different produce and flavors.
On the flip side, with the start of each day, any culinary failures I previously had, any culinary sins I may have committed, are a thing of the past. This just might be the day when I make a successful soufflé. You never know.
Michael Ruhlman* is going to be speaking at the Institute of Culinary Education. Anyone want to go with me?
* I'm enamored with his book The Elements of Cooking. Excellent resource for the novice foodie.
