commodorified: A cartoon of a worried looking woman in a chef's hat (cooking for people who don't)

Solicit or offer ideas, cheer each other on, ask for or offer data or resources, team up and do a group-authored post or a mini-carnival cluster of posts, find a beta, be a beta ...

I would like to say: I am not at all worried about avoiding duplication, and suggest that nobody else be either.

If eight people do posts on How To Cook Eggs, they will all be different, they will all be right and useful, and each of them will be somebody's absolute most useful and favourite post of the whole carnival.

Carry on!

I think the "basic pantry staples" list/discussion could be helpful.

But, "the point of view of someone who taught a college-aged friend that assembling sandwiches wasn't really cooking" might not be the most helpful POV from which to approach it.

I find myself resistant to learning when it's presented as the 'real', 'right' or 'best' way, or equally accessible or relevant to everyone. Especially if my choices or experience get invalidated in the comparison.

I think a post about different ways of preparing food might be helpful, based on this discussion. (Not one that I'm considering writing, just an idea I'm offering out there should anyone want to pick it up and run with it. Or not, for that matter.)

Apology gladly accepted. Thanks for hearing me.

"isn't the only way of cooking"?

"isn't her only option for cooking"?
