Yes, we have a little purple house. And inside, outside, and all around it we try to do things with care and attention.
That means growing what we can without the help of chemicals and using all the garden gives us. And what we don't grow, we try to be responsible about where and from whom we buy stuff.
The same rules apply in the kitchen. We try to cook as often as possible, and take no shortcuts along the way.
Home cooking takes time and requires skills we're likely to lose if we don't use them often.
A roast chicken is the measure of a good cook. Everybody should know how to roast a chicken, and you should never stop trying to get better at it.
I just don't stop at chicken.
