No Substitutions

January 14, 2009 at 10:01 am Leave a comment

if you’re going to cook there’s two ways to do it. wing it and taste as you go or use a recipe (but we all know using a recipe every time you cook isn’t real cooking). it’s ok to use a recipe as a reference to see how to use an ingredient you are not familiar with. that makes sense. but does it ever make sense to pull out a recipe and make something different?

i mean you are consciously trying to make the food like the recipe, but decide on your own what you should add and what you shouldn’t? that’s like substituting vinegar for oil!

if you are trying to make a salad dressing that requires vinegar, mustard, honey, pomegranate juice, and molasses and leave out two ingredients. it’s not the same thing! stop telling yourself it is!
