As you know, I love to cook. Writing is my vocation—but cooking is my avocation. It’s my hobby. With all the intangible work that I do, I find that cooking grounds me, gives me a daily tangible that I can do.
The past couple of years, I’ve also gotten hooked on a new cooking resource. Founded by Christopher Kimball, formerly of Cook’s Illustrated and America’s Test Kitchen, Milk Street’s magazine, website, TV show, and podcast have become some of my dearest cooking companions.
Kimball’s goal is to listen to cooks from cultures all over the world. Seriously. I’ve learned more about cuisines from Africa—Ghana, Senegal Ethiopia—than I ever knew before. Yet Milk Street’s focus isn’t on glitz and complication. Milk Street knows that everyone is just trying to get dinner on the table, and we can all learn from one another.
Check it out. I can’t wait to hear what’s cooking in your kitchen!
