If you follow me on Instagram, this young scruffy Seattle freegan will look familiar to you. I am currently on assignment in Seattle, having the time of my life! I met this guy at Volunteer Park a couple of days ago. He was adventurous, bright eyed and bushy tailed. He had the best quality that a gastronome can have, fearlessness. I did not shoot this on a zoom lense. My feet were my zoom. This is me, two feet away from a Seattle squirrel. He didn't even flinch.
Today should be the day I post Meals on Heels Volume 7, my goodness are we at Volume 7 already!? The only trouble is I had no time whatsoever for Meals on Heals this week. Between travel, a lot of shooting, and a lot of being behind a computer screen (I will conquer my quicksand inbox!!!) it didn't happen. I have had some time to reflect on Meals on Heels and my cooking goals this year.
This year I want to become more fearless about my cooking. I want to do things that I have never even considered, like stuffing a lamb or perfecting steamed fish (which they tell me if you do right tastes like the lightest, buttery fish imaginable). I want to learn the best of the best dishes and techniques from other cultures. I am up for it and I am DETERMINED and FEARLESS.
On that note, what are YOUR goals for cooking this year? Are you looking to take your sea bass to the next level or are you just trying not to burn the eggs!? I would LOVE to hear your feedback on what you want to learn. What do you struggle with? What do you not enjoy so much about the kitchen? What kind of time constraints are you working with? What do you love to eat at restaurants but feel you could never make on your own? Comment away and together we will conquer!
