To Cook Is To Blog.
My mother — a sublime cook — has never once photographed a meal to show anyone who wasn’t there to eat it in the first place. Is she just more grown-up and self-confident than my attention-hungry, food-blogging, instagram-ing generation? Or has she really missed a good thing?
We can’t say it isn’t fun.
This weekend, my youngest and I inaugurated a new cookbook: Nigellissima, by Nigella Lawson. He looked through all the pictures, and made his choice. Panettone French Toast with Pomegranates.
After a grocery excursion, we dug in. First, the pomegranates. I tried dislodging the seeds by whacking the outside shell with the flat side of a chef’s knife. My son used the meat tenderizer on his half. Guess whose tool worked best?
The french toast turned out great. We recommend the recipe, and the cookbook.
And the blogging, too.
