"The conversation here is about mastering and enjoying more variety in our cooking. At the heart of variety is cooking with an intention to improvise. I find that people who love cooking love improvising in the kitchen. They enjoy the art of transforming what's available into what's possible. They are more versatile with simple ingredients. Their cooking, eating and life reach new levels of vitality."
