The last time I said a litany to the life-forces in my kitchen, I prayed for sun. A day later it was sunny and warm. Luck of the Irish or purely supernatural?
Either way, I am a firm believer in positioning idols in the kitchen. In fact, a little altar is the best thing I added to my kitchen this past year to improve my cooking skills…or lack of them.
Half of my kitchen magic was shipped off to my sister this week. He’ll love watching her stand on her hands during a meditative, yoga state instead of pulling me through yet another fallen soufflé.
The other half? She’s going with me to Mexico so the pressure is all on her. In fact, I now have great expectations for my mole.
After months of the same routine, don’t you think a change of scenery will be good for our cooking?
Stay tuned and Bon Appetit!
