Mixing

 

Recently I have become interested in expanding my relationship with food. For the past 17 months or so, I have specialized in "eating." However, I have decided that it is time to explore other options, including preparing my own food.

To start off with, I have been experimenting with mixing, both by hand and with this cool electric mixer.

Hand mixing allows me to express myself by "banging" a mixing implement (whisk, spoon, etc.) against a bowl WITH a liquid in it. This is extremely satisfying. 

On the other hand, the electric mixer goes around and around and around and around... it is mesmerizing.

The Chef looks a little concerned when I take an active part in food preparation. I expect it is because she might be out of work if I ever decided to take up cooking full time.
