Why do you cook? It's a simple question but there are many different answers. Professional chefs cook because it's their career. The rest of us cook because we need to, but also because we want to cook. Recently a conversation with a friend prompted my curiosity so I asked some bloggers this very question and will be posting their answers very soon. But for now, I'd love to hear what you have to say:
Why do YOU cook?
I'm also curious to know:
What was the last cookbook you bought?
What was the last cookbook you used and which recipe did you reference?
As an incentive, I am giving away an advance reading copy of 100 Words for Foodies and an attractive Epicurious kitchen apron to one lucky respondent (so be sure to include your email, it will only be visible to me). Only one comment per person, please. I look forward to hearing what you have to say!
