I Want You All to be Artists
“A cook is not an artist. A cook follows a recipe, and he’s a good cook if he follows the recipe correctly. A chef is an artist. She’s an artist when she invents a new way of cooking or a new type of dish that creates surprise or joy or pleasure for the person she created it for.” ~Seth Godin, Linchpin
My goal is not simply that you try my recipes and follow them exactly – my goal is for you to become an artist. To play with your food, add a dash of this, a sprinkling of that – throw in some of this and that you had left in the fridge. Make the meals and the tastes your own. Make the meals your tapestry. I want you to be artists.
