I stumbled across yet another cooking book today – Philip Dunda’s “Cooking Without Recipes”. His inspiring book animates people to get to know the ingredients of food and to experiment in the kitchen, instead of working down the list of a recipe. Of course, that can be tough (see for example http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2011/nov/16/cookery-without-recipes). However, I would like to introduce his book here, as his intentions are also the focus of this blog; we are a big journey discovering the world of food around us and experimenting with our favourite ingredients. Unclear yet, where this journey will take us – we hope for lots of inspiration and discussion! After all the journey is the goal – especially when it comes to cooking and food!
NPR radio has a blog called “the salt”. An absolutely fabulous source of information on food, food industry & production, trends and food enjoyment. A simple glance on their categories (“eating and health”, “foodways”, “producers”, “food for thought”, “for foodies”) is convincing enough to visit the site again. Since its radio, you can listen to all of their contribution. It was here that I stumbled across this very intriguing cooking book by Jennifer McLagan: “Bitter – a taste of the world’s most dangerous flavor, with recipes”. I really want to try these recipes now…. : http://www.npr.org/player/v2/mediaPlayer.html?action=1&t=1&islist=false&id=349277608&m=349464217&live=1
