Food Rules, Rule Number Seventeen

When people make food for other people, the results are often great. Many of us have great memories of home-cooked meals, but the fact of the matter is that they are fewer and farther between than they should be. I remember meals my grandmother made me that I have not yet duplicated for my family. Granted, the execution would not be quite so great, but it’s still worth trying.

The only admonition for the rule of eating what real people cook you is that chefs tend to be heavy on the sodium. Often when I’m dining out folks will comment that something is salty, as they shovel in bite after bite. Salt makes food taste great, and most of us don’t have to go without it…at least not yet. But commercially prepared food tends to have higher salt content that most of what folks make at home.

Cook something! It takes time, but it’s also fun to cook with kids, who get really invested in the process and tend to try whatever it is they help to make.
