A sense of history and future. The ability to analyze and create. These are things completely or at least partially unique to being human. Who first
tried all those mushrooms, and when was it we decided which ones were safe to eat? Who figured out you should cook them with space in between, that you can can and jar them, and that they were perfect for shish-kabob? Great ideas don't just evolve on their
own, but through communication with other great cooks. We are inspired by others.
So be inspired when you cook or bake...but especially when you cook, as it is a very forgiving art. Try out new things. Throw in different herbs or wines. Dance and play music to get your
creative juices flowing.
I have gotten a lot of inspiration from food blogs. Iowa Girl Eats once posted on Naked Ravioli. Really? Naked Ravioli? I'm admittedly addicted to pasta, so the idea of purposely creating
a pasta dish without the pasta on the surface just seems wrong. Knowing, however, that some of the best food ideas came from a human willingness to step out on a limb (for example: willing trying all those mushrooms) I decided to consider the fact that creating
ravioli without the precious pasta wrapping, may in fact be a good idea. And it IS!
