Cooking is a life-long effort; s home cooks, there is always something we are striving to achieve, wrestling with, or dreaming of attempting. Which brings us to this week’s question:
What kitchen technique are you currently trying to master?
Are you working on poaching the perfect egg? Dreaming of Julia’s Boeuf Bourguignon? Or do you find yourself throwing underbaked, unsalvageable bread into the trash can after angrily eating all of the sort-of-edible edges? Tell us in the comments — there’s not judgment here.
Entertaining has gotten complicated. Lately, it seems that everyone has strong feelings about the food they eat, what’s in it, and where it comes from. This isn’t a bad thing, of course, but it can be hard for a host or hostess to navigate the waters of our spirited food dialogs and the preferences they create.
