I have only one spoon. It’s from Taiwan from 10 years ago, and there’s a bird on it. It needs some friends.
Cooking is my project for this year, 2017. I’ve been cooking simple foods for myself for years, but just as merely essential biological business. Ingest calories, consume balanced nutrition, don’t get poisoned. I’ve stalled because cooking more interesting foods is inherently less efficient. My typical pantry is quite versatile, and expanding the pantry means spending more. Also, it’s so, so difficult to cook with variety for one without being wasteful. Thus, to overcome all three hurdles simultaneously, I need to involve more people, especially if I want to cook 52 new dishes by the end of the year. So here’s how it’ll work:
I’ll invite you over for a home-cooked meal. It’ll involve some experimentation, and I’ll need your help — I’ll ask you to brainstorm some ideas, maybe fund half of it, come and cook too if you’d like. But most importantly:
Bring a spoon.
