A Wonderful Philosophy On Food

Having finally gotten my hands on a copy of A New Book of Middle Eastern Food by Claudia Roden I couldn’t not share what I consider to be a wonderful philosophy on food and one that I believe is at the essence of why I love to cook.

” ….after the initial trying out of a new recipe, readers are encouraged to trust their taste and to taste often, and allow themselves a certain freedom in preparation.  This is in the spirit of a cuisine which is rich in regional differences.”
