We aspire to inspire before we expire.
We’re not expiring… but we are retiring. So, in our final Q&A, we’d like to leave you a list of sources that we use when we need inspiration for feeding our families:
- Friends: talk to your friends, neighbors and/or play group for ideas and sharing
- Markets: farmers markets, local food vendors, grocery stores (recipes, newsletters, staff)
- Cookbooks: Ina Garten is a consistent winner, our favorite cookbooks
- Magazines: current favorites include Food and Wine, Martha Stewart, and Sunset – for those of us on the West Coast
- Blogs / Websites: Food Network, America’s Test Kitchen offer a wide range of resources
- Videos: New York Times Food, Martha Stewart offer many how-to and instructional videos
- Educational Programs (Let’s Move, Michael Pollan, Mark Bittman, Laurie David).
- Ask your kids for their ideas.
In the immortal words of the fabulous Julia Child,
“learn how to cook – try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless and above all have fun.”
