In this week's New York Times Magazine, Michael Pollan (one of my all time favorite writers) talks about cooking:
Out of the Kitchen, Onto the Couch
How American cooking became a spectator sport, and what we lost along the way.
*Just a few words from me on this:
When people cut their budget, one of the first things that
gets cut is groceries. Not only does this end up being
time consuming (all the coupon cutting, flyer scouring,
driving to the cheapest store) but it negatively impacts
the quality of the food you buy. I've talked about this
before, but the food you eat is the fuel that helps you
work hard, play hard and feel good. Not only that, but a
good diet is a good investment in your health. So, visit the farmer's market, check out a cookbook from the library,
and go for it.
