I learned something very profound from watching this video by Jacob Barnett, a 16 year old autistic prodigy. I have stopped learning and now just create.I wont write an indepth recipe, only what I put in, leaving plenty of room for heart in your art. Don't be afraid to change things up, leave things out, or cooking however the hell you like. There's no recipe to life, we have to wing it, making it up as we go along. This little kid has changed the way I think about everything.
I used to throw away veggie peeling, but after making an amazingly full flavored stock out of frozen scraps at a friends over christmas, and the fact that I buy organic vegetables, it made sense to start freezing my own. Once you have a bag full just pop them in a dutch oven or slow cooker, add water, a bay leaf, salt and peppercorns and slow cook for as long as you can be bothered.
I have been doing this since the beginning of the year and the results are incredible. Be warned, if you are into slow cooking and like to do so during the night make sure you shut all the doors as the smell will kick your brain into action. I like food, but that doesn't mean I want to stay awake all night thinking about what I'm going to make the next day.
The last picture was taken half underwater, cause that's what under water cameras are for.
never work in your kitchen, get creative and make some magic!
