Unofficial Cooking Manifesto

(Although more official now because I wrote it down. Please understand that I fully expect to change my mind and to break my own rules at my earliest convenience.)
  • Only cook for yourself, because you never have to compromise and if it is inedible you are the only one who suffers.
  • Never make the same recipe twice. Life is too short to eat the same thing over and over again. (make limited exceptions for things like favorite holiday cookies)
  • Stick to the outside edges of the grocery store as much as possible. If you can’t pick it up and recognize which part of a plant or animal it came from you probably shouldn’t eat it. You should not have to read the label and have a degree in chemistry to understand what you are putting into your body.
  • If the package and/or the commercial says it is good for you… bulls**t.  They just want you to buy it.  Carrots are good for you; no commercials and no packages at all.

***A manifesto is a public declaration of principles and intentions, often political in nature. However, manifestos relating to religious belief are generally referred to as a creed. Manifestos may also be life stance-related.

  1. Are you a reader of Michael Pollen’s books? The best one is Omnivore’s Dilemma? He likes to cook too, but if you follow his writings you will be a very wise eater (not just pretty food).

    • I read that while travelling in Italy with my dad last year. I loved it, but totally annoyed him by constantly blurting out all the unappetizing facts. I have not read any of his other books yet though.
