Some food philosophy and their derivations:
*A bad bagel topped with garlic and parmesan does not = a good bagel. The best food in the world is created with flour, water and salt when those ingredients are given their proper love & respect. (via Alice Waters)
*Good food doesn't have to be hard. Pick a star flavor, just one, and let it shine. (via Mark Bittman)
*Make sure your food is the right temperature. My mother would never serve an uncrisped salad or rolls that weren't right out of the oven. Thanks, Mom.
*Sit down with your people every night and eat together. (Thanks, Dad.)
*Everything is better when Bammy's in the kitchen rolling out a thin pie crust made with tenderflake lard packed in a suitcase and driven down from Canada.
*Your food tastes better when it's beautiful. (Dad)
*Make friends with farmers and gardeners if you can't be one yourself. (Alice Waters)
*Respect the seasons. (Grandma Beth)
I'd love to hear some of your food philosophies, even if you only just now realized that you had them.
