Good Taste: Wise Words

Here's what my hero and New York Times food editor, Mark Bittman, says is the most important skill when it comes to cooking:

“The ability to go in there and start. I am the least impressive cook you will ever see. I am completely without knife skills, I screw things up all the time. When I’m in the kitchen I’m not obsessively trying to create the perfect dish; I’m trying to put dinner on the table. Comparing yourself to the people who cook on television is like comparing yourself to Andre Agassi. If you can drive you can cook.”

I love his blog, too.

Although you are already light years beyond this advice!

This is great. I need some kitchen inspiration. Getting dinner on the table...anything on the the goal these days!
