HOW WALKING MAKES ME A BETTER COOK

HOW WALKING MAKES ME A BETTER COOK

A while back I changed my walks into meditative walks. I don’t remember if I read about it or if I just discovered how powerful it is.

It’s not complicated or difficult; there is nothing you need to learn. All you have to do is let your eyes wander over the scene in front of you and whatever grabs your attention you focus on. Actually, you hyper-focus on it until it becomes the only thing you see until you walk past it and your eyes move on to the next thing that grabs your attention and you repeat the process throughout your walk.

The effect is that your mind stops jumping from thought to thought and slows to take in what your eyes are beholding at that moment. As your thoughts quiet down and you become engulfed in the world around you, a sense of peace takes over. And I realize I’m in bliss.

Such a simple thing makes a massive impact.

I thought about that experience and tried to figure out how it could be used to become a better cook 

Because cooking is about the combination of ingredients and flavors, it makes sense that focusing on those components will make it easier to anticipate the results of what you are making or adjust something that isn’t quite right.

The best way to do that is to taste everything you cook as you’re cooking it, but instead of using your eyes, let your tastebuds inform you. The more you understand the ingredients and the flavors you use, the more control you have and the easier it is to create great results.

Do you know the secret good cooks know that make cooking easy and delicious? SAUCES! And they are actually easy to make. Learn how in Le Kitchen Cookbook: a Workbook. GET IT HERE

You particularly know how satisfying that experience is when you expect it but don’t have it. Here is how...

Sitting at the dinner table and lingering after a delicious meal has always been my favorite part of a party. I love when the table, still cluttered with plates, silver, bottles, and glasses half-full, all shimmering in the candle light. Everyone dawdling, their voices excited while eruptions . . .

So far, 2022 has shaken me to my core. It has left me questioning things I believed to be true—things I took for granted. Number 1 I NEVER thought Roe v. Wade would be overturned. That is my stupidity; the signs were obvious but I just didn’t believe it could/would happen. Number 2 I NEVER thought . . .
