“Give a man a fish, and he’ll eat for a day; teach a man to fish, and he’ll eat for a lifetime”
I am reminded of this phrase, almost every time someone asks me for a recipe; I feel like when I give them a recipe, I’m only “giving them a fish”, rather than helping them eat for a lifetime. I feel like I’m somehow selling them short because they are simply following words on a page, rather than understanding the dynamics of that recipe. Imagine learning the basics behind a recipe, enough to understand how to apply that method on your own WITHOUT using a recipe; you would save so much time not having to keep referring back to the sheet of paper and you’d have the confidence to try new things and experiment on your own, creating your own amazing dishes!
With that said, I’d like to share with you some of the basics to the 9 basic methods of cooking!
