“A recipe has no soul, you as the cook must bring soul to the recipe.” – Thomas Keller
This quote is my everything. I don’t think there has ever been a recipe, save for a dessert (i.e., baked good), that I have followed to a “t”. You need to bring “you” to a dish. Maybe it’s little extra spice, an added splash of olive oil or substituting an ingredient for something you love. Add a little bit of who you are and what you want to tell those enjoying it.
