“There is a prevailing theory that we need to know much more than we do in order to feed ourselves well. It isn’t true. Most of us already have water, a pot to put it in, and a way to light a fire. This gives us boiling water, in which we can do more good cooking than we seem to realize."
For the reluctant cook
An Everlasting Meal: Cooking with Economy and Grace by Tamar Adler
Tamar Adler writes with a wit and frankness that are surely to entertain as much as she inspires. With chapters such as "How to Boil Water" and "How to Teach an Egg to Fly," the author reminds us that some of the best meals are made simply and don't require a lot of effort.
She also explains why buying a whole chicken at a farmers market is money worth spending.
Tamar even addresses the therapeutic effects of preparing your own food. "If you happen to have a friend shaken by heartache, hand over a bag of raw artichokes. Once she has relieved them of their leaves, encourage one brave bite. Between the meditative peeling and the bitter taste, she should be completely healed."
