Prepping is Everything
I was in the middle of making Yakisoba noodles with pork for lunch today when I suddenly noticed all my nice, organized piles of chopped ingredients. (Note how crazy I am with the garlic.)
It makes me look a little OCD:
First, cooking is like making art. You want all the colors and the flavors and the textures to balance and come out delicious and beautiful. To be successful in either, you need to be detail oriented.
Second, I love the prep part of cooking. I listen to the radio and zone out and focus on the task at hand.
