What on earth do they have in common?
I like to cook. In fact, I love to cook! Especially for company. I’m not a chef — I just look for cool recipes that sound amazing; I enjoy trying different things; and I do very occasionally improve on these recipes if I can figure out a way to do that. Once I find a recipe that I like, I make it again and again until I really feel like I’ve got it right. My friends make me feel quite caught off balance with their praise at times; and I always say “I just follow a recipe, you know!”
I’m going to let you in on a little secret though: the devil is in the details; but you probably already knew that. If a recipe calls for lemon juice, I try to make sure I have fresh lemons on hand; likewise for garlic (of course), ginger, coriander and all those wonderful flavour enhancers. It seems simple to me, but not a lot of people take the time to do that. And now here’s some crazy talk: for any dish that requires fresh spinach (or spinach that’s lightly steamed), I go ahead and remove the stems before adding it to the bowl. Who wants that stringy little green mouse tail stuck between their teeth? Tomatoes? Unless I specifically want the juice in there, I carefully core and seed those babies before they go in. It might seem like a lot of trouble to go to, but it makes a huge difference to the taste, the texture, and the sheer enjoyment value of the dish!
Ah yes… what on earth does any of this have to do with graphic design? Well, you see… e
