'No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers.'
― Laurie Colwin (1944-1992) in the introduction to her memoir and cookbook, Home Cooking
My friend and fellow cook and blogger, Celia from Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, is a font of knowledge when it comes to sourcing quality ingredients in bulk, and Celia is at the top of the list when I need clarification or advice on cooking. For example, Celia's instructions on chocolate making are among the best I've seen. And if you need help with baking bread or making jams and preserves, visit Celia's blog before you start cooking. Also on Celia's blog is a monthly round up of In My Kitchen posts from cooks and bloggers around the world and this post is dedicated to Celia, with thanks.
