Everything I Needed to Know I Learned in the Kitchen

I was thinking about how the kitchen is such a metaphor for life:

  • Salt is like enthusiasm — add at the beginning and the middle, but reserve some for the end.
  • Keep your tools sharp; pay attention as you use them.
  • When you’re hot, sweaty, and exhausted, stop to appreciate the sauce you’re making.
  • If it lacks flavor, try reducing.
  • Always kiss the cook, especially if it’s you.
