Cook What Is
I read the best quote on this cool blog I just found.
"Cooking this way reverses the modern relationship between a chef and an ingredient. Rather than writing a menu and then going shopping, the chef walks through a garden or market; goes foraging, fishing or hunting; and cooks what is. This approach can deliver vibrant flavours and lively meals. Responsive cooking is not only a way to approach dinner. It is a way to approach life, grounded in what is, eyes wide open to what could be." -Molly O'Neill, from The Blackberry Farm Cookbook.
Yes! How delightful and beautiful is that? Cook what is...grounded in what is, eyes wide open to what could be. Love.
And the blog is pretty awesome too. There are posts about wild foods and herbs, medicine making and fermentation. Double love!
