My private challenge is to try a new recipe every week. If the “bones” are good, then I work with it over time until I like what I have. Once David and I agree it meets our very high standards, I write it up. Very often this works out great. And then there are times like yesterday when they don’t work out at all. The recipe was confusing and the result was, well, AWFUL!
Fortunately, David is an adventurous eater and always willing to try these experiments. The other good thing is that he is quite willing to give me his unvarnished opinion. In case you are wondering you are supposed to laugh here – it is that was joke. Seriously, he is a good cook in his own right and some of our best food ideas are a collaboration. (more…)
