Um…I actually enjoy posts about the actual daily activities behind the scenes in the kitchen. It is interesting to me that it takes 3 hours for someone to cut radishes for the potato salad into eights…I don’t know why, I suppose because it serves to further build the appreciation I have for the food I eat that is prepared by someone who cares enough to do that. Standards in America are so subjected to shortcuts, both to serve some notion of cost effectiveness and because I’m guessing that many are so accustomed to factory food that they’ve ceased expecting their food to be prepared with the care and love that comes from a commercial source.
Thank you for sharing your story on the work and attention to detail and yes, the love, that goes into a mainstay like potato salad. I appreciate it anyway, so much, when I discover a detail beyond flavor that indicates that someone who actually cares has made what I am eating. Especially for something seemingly simple, like pototo salad.
