What’s the best cooking advice you’ve ever received?
The best piece I ever received was found in a random, fluffy memoir that I read several years ago.
The author had fallen passionately in love with cooking and her words of wisdom were both basic and sage:
If you love an ingredient, use more of it.
If you’re making a cake, and you love vanilla, then slosh in a little extra. If you’re making cookies with cinnamon, and you just love cinnamon, dash in a little more. If you’re making garlicky bok choy, and you just love, love, love garlic, then forget mincing up a single clove and dice up 6 or 7.
This advice has served me well time and again. Be brave. Cook without reserve. Bake with gusto.
