Random Food Stuff
Recently I read an article in one of the London commuter papers that said that the number one job that people would consider if making a career change was cooking. Now, this survey was conducted at a grocery store so I think their sample might be a little skewed. But watching someone go through that very change makes me think that all of the cooking competitions and the reality shows on television give an unrealistic view of the life of a chef.
H has been making bread at home practicing for work. We’ve both been reading Richard Bertinet’s books about breadmaking. H tried Bertinet’s techniques and said it’s a workout. If you make the bread his way you could probably eat all you wanted. The bread is delicious but even if I never ate a bite, that smell throughout the house is heavenly.
Here’s a new favourite recipe that I tried last weekend. I’m always looking for a good one pot meal and this was great over couscous.
Through blogger I stumbled upon this blog written by an American chef living in Australia. His pics are absolutely gorgeous and the posts are very interesting. If you’re into cooking, check it out.
