Over the past year I’ve found myself wishing I knew more about cooking in general. Oh, to be able to confidently stroll through the farmers market, choose the choicest produce, come home, and put dinner on the table with ease.
Since I’ve been a part of CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture) for more than six years now, I at least have a general idea of what to do with all kinds of vegetables. Now, I want to learn how to go beyond following a recipe.
To help me in this quest, I’ve decided to launch into the Back to Basics Cooking Series. Based loosely on Alice Waters’ The Art of Simple Food, I hope to gain confidence in the kitchen by learning basic techniques and sharing them with you. I hope you will join in with your tips and advice on each week’s topic, too!
From January through April, 2012, we’ll cook our way through the dark days of winter. Each Monday I’ll introduce the topic, throughout the week I’ll share the recipes I try, and then on Friday I hope you’ll link up your favorite recipes that fit the theme.
