Chef SweaterMeat – Knits. Cooks. Great Rack.
Texture based. In designing sweaters as much as cooking, I like the way certain textures go together, how it feels to take various blades through different foods. I approach cooking with a Like Water for Chocolate mentality, it explains why I can never make the same recipe taste exactly like my mother’s or grandmother’s. They all taste like mine. I dont have their hands, their hearts. I find cooking to be a form of meditation, and I love feeding people.
I think wasting food is a sin. If you don’t take your leftovers home with you from a restaurant, expect me to come over to your table and annoy the ever living shit out of you. I also like recipes that can easily be changed to meet different tastes and to use up leftovers.
I don’t believe in dieting. I think health is a combination of exercise you dont notice (dancing, sex, playing around with friends, swimming, biking) laughter, happiness, whole foods AND comfort foods. A balance of organic, natural foods, and artificial cheese!!! : ) I think its important that if you are going to eat unhealthy things, they had better be worth it. I like to think of myself as professionally fat. Also, I have PCOS, which makes it difficult for me to process sugar and to lose weight, and a crap ton of food sensitivities, so that definitely contributes too.
With Love and By Hand,
