What’s For Dinner?

“In cooking, the primal scene, or substance, is salt, sugar, and fat held in maximum solution with starch; add protein as necessary, and finish with caffeine (coffee or chocolate) as desired.”

This is probably one of my favorite quotes about food, it sums up eating pretty well. It’s from an article in the current issue of The New Yorker on how and why we use cookbooks and how we cook meals in the home. It’s an interesting read and discusses all the different types of cookbooks that flood our kitchens and shelves.

Can you really learn to cook from a book? How do you tell firm peaks from stiff ones? How do you define “chopped”?

And for the week of Thanksgiving here is my favorite wallpaper to make your work environment festive (click image for full size).
