Hi Foodies. We all know why we are here. We love food or work with food or wish we could work with food or wish we could love food more and all that. But do you think about it too much? Do you wile away with thoughts of you next great meal or anxiously await the sequel to your favorite cookbook? I was cleaning up at the restaurant today and pondered some of the symptoms of the truly cooking obscessed. 1. You remember significant events by what you ate or prepared on that on that occasion. By the same token you meet someone for the second time and don't remember their name, but can remember that they don't like mushrooms and are allergic to tomatoes. 2. You keep cooking utensils in your car "just in case". Or if you are like me, you can't understand why everyone doesn't go camping with an espresso maker, wire whip with copper bowl and a nutmeg grater. 3. You come in to work and tell your co-worker something like " I went home last night and did'nt really feel like cooking. So I whipped up a little Rissoto Milanese and Clafloutis, a bottle of Chianti Reserva and called it good".
