Just watched the Joe Beef munchies episode on Vice.com. Super good.
While there’s tons of food porn out there filled with zoom ins, slicing, oozing juices, perfect presentations, smoked meats, noodles, steam, drinking, etc…
A lot of this get shit canned as being unnecessary. Especially when we have a clear weight and health problem here in the US. But I look at it as inspiration.
These dishes inspire me to cook and cook well. Mainly for my family and friends.
Cooking is personal. I get caught up in the process, the preparation, the ingredients, the lists, the methods, the checking off things, the smiles and the filled stomachs.
I’m not a chef. Cooking for me is showing people who I am in the clearest way imaginable.
I love it.
