eat food, not too much, most­ly plants

Michael Pol­lan

phi­los­o­phy for my recipe writing 

pro­duce in bulk

reduc­ing waste of ingre­di­ents, ener­gy and time — chill or freeze all the leftovers 

focus on essen­tials

the sim­pler the recipe, the more times you want to prac­tice and hone your skill


each time, try and do some­thing new to learn from — a dif­fer­ent spice or method
