“I need a new way to cook. My old way is getting old.”
“I was drawn to your site because my friends tease me about my early substitution skills which mostly has to do with the fact that I would always serve a meal say something like ‘this was meant to be Thai Chicken but I had these prawns and then I didn’t have any coriander… so I … regularly pick a recipe and ‘approximate’ ingredients. But at least now I start with the ingredients in mind and cook from there. Mostly :)”
“When we are creative with food and ingredients, it’s just like creating any artwork…we have a general idea, jump in, learn from our mistakes and adjust until we love what we have.  Then….we move onto the next thing and start over again!”
“Your Essential Chocolate Cake for Improvising was a revelation for me. I made it for a birthday with the last precious bit of gros sel aux herbes de provence. Now it is a family tradition.”
