Here is a nice piece from The Splendid Table about what “Extra Virgin” olive oil really means. It’s very interesting and informative, and comes complete with a video, recipe, and recommendations.
Also, apparently over half of Americans would rather do taxes than making and eating a homemade meal. Holy cow! Now that’s pretty bad!
Culination hopes to help change that, and is an “e-learning community that connects seasoned chefs with home cooks.” It’s designed to be informative and interactive, and is a great way to learn more about food and how to make it not such a chore to make and enjoy a homemade meal.
My favorite line from the article is: “we want your kitchen to be a place of inspiration, not intimidation.”
It is a well said, succinct sentence that is something K and I also firmly believe. We want you to use the Every Bite cookbook as a way to be enthusiastic and inspired to be in the kitchen; not dreading or avoiding it.
And this is just something funny I (C) saw on “Sandwich Morning” on NPR. What the heck?! I just do NOT want my eggs shaped like that! GROSS! The video is funny (and that’s it’s an actual thing is a little scary), but it’s the comments that are particularly hilarious!
