"Cooking creates a sense of well-being for yourself and the people you love and brings beauty and meaning to everyday life.
"And all it requires is common sense – the common sense to eat seasonally, to know where your food comes from, to support and buy from local farmers and producers who are good stewards of our natural resources, and to apply the same principles of conservation to your own home kitchen."
This is one of my favorite quotes from Alice Waters' newest book, In the Green Kitchen: Techniques to Learn By Heart.
Inside she shares simple and straightforward recipes that teach readers fundamental skills for healthy cooking (no fancy equipment needed). Learn the basics then cook what inspires you, with the confidence to adapt recipes to local and seasonal ingredients.
