corner view: improvising




Me encantan los libros de cocina, los utencilios y todo lo relacionado con la preparación de alimentos... pero la verdad es que poco uso esos libros, practicamente me sirven de inspiración y algunas veces para conocer alguna técnica en especial, pero nunca sigo las recetas al pie de la letra. Siempre improviso: un poco de esto y aquéllo y un poco menos de esto otro. Usando lo que tengo a la mano. Preparando lo que en ese momento pase por mi cabeza. Me encanta hacerlo y soy afortunada de tener un hombre que siempre está dispuesto a probar mis inventos o descubrimientos...
I love cookbooks, utensils and everything related to food preparation ... but the truth is that I almost never use those books, they just be here to inspire me and sometimes to know some special technique, but I never follow recipes to the letter. Always I'm improvising when cooking: a little of this and that and a little less of this one. Using what I have on hand. Doing what passes through my head. I love doing it and I am fortunate to have a man who is always willing to try my inventions or discoveries...

  5. And it looks like you have the tools to do it! Love the metallic holders! So handy! That way you don't cut yourself finding them in the drawer!
    I notice the word 'chocolate' is spelled universally....chocolate is the same in every language!!! Perfect! Yeah, the perfect food, right? lol That way if I am in a foreign country and I am hungry at least I can get some chocolate!!!!

  6. A mi me pasa lo mismo, tengo una gran colección de libros que me fascina leer y mirar las fotos pero casi nunca sigo las recetas a el pie de la letra a menos que vaya a hornear entonces si que sigo las recetas. Es mucho mas divertido experimentar.

  7. I'm totally there with you on not following recipes to the letter but what really caught my eye was my the picture of my all time favorite cookbook... The Silver Spoon. Have you made much out of it? If not I highly recommend the bread and tomato soup - its the perfect weeknight dinner, quick and healthy - not to mention super tasty.

  14. I wish I knew how to improvise with cooking! I have tons of cookbooks and I never make anything out of them either. At least you do cook, even though not out of the books :)
