Hallie the co-founder of this TEDxCLE talk sent me over this video to share with you. Michael Ruhlman, in my opinion, is one of the best if not the best food writers out there. He has written some of my favorite cookbooks (Ad Hoc, A Return to Cooking, French Laundry, The Soul of a Chef, and the amazing list goes on) and books having to deal with the world of cooking (you have seen a few on here and there are a lot more on the way, just need to focus and read!).
When Michael Ruhlman writes, I read. When he speaks, I listen. When he’s in a video, I watch. His message is simple, you need to cook more….we all do, as a society. No more excuses for not having time or being too busy. Just cook something, get the aroma of food flowing through your home, be proud of your meal, your family, and the time you spend together. If it doesn’t turn out then order some pizza or kill it with a bunch of hot sauce, the fact is that cooking does amazing things for anyone who is willing to take the time to do it. I believe it, I live it, and it’s nice to have someone like Michael Ruhlman to put it into to better words than I can. Cook more!
Thanks again to Hallie F. Bram and Eric Kogelschatz for founding this TED talk in Cleveland. Mr. Ruhlman,if you’re out there, thanks for being an inspiration while I cook a lot!
