Is it odd that, in plotting personal goals for 2014, some of the first things that come to mind are dishes I want to make? Maybe. I’ve stumbled upon the “culinary bucket lists” of others, though, so I know I’m not the only one. (Odd yes, alone no.)
If the historical pattern holds, some of these goals are destined to end up as one-shot experiences – Shrimp & Grits was a good example – a nice detour, but not something I intend to add to my permanent repertoire.
Occasionally, though, I experiment with something that fundamentally changes me for-ev-er. On a molecular level. Case in point: Whipped Chocolate Ganache.
Which has truly changed me on a molecular level.
Sorry not sorry.
