3. “Do people really not know how to cook anymore?”. This article really spoke to me because it’s something I struggle with when writing the recipes we publish here or create for brands. I tend to leave out little steps and be vague about spicing quantities; and then Feige steps in and questions and edits to fill in the gaps. I view most recipes (even mine) as guidelines that can be changed to your tastes, how fast/slow your oven cooks, what you have in your kitchen that can be switched out or the quantities you need. My mother makes challah by feel, there is literally no recipe, just a feeling, and it’s the best there is. What recipe instructions do you find most useful (exact quantities, substitution suggestions….) – let us know in the comments, so that we can bring you easier to follow recipes.
