A Balanced Out Convo With Michael Ruhlman About Ratios!

For months now I’ve been developing a new section of the blog where I merge my published writing based on interviews of major food players (chefs, writers, resto owners, TV personalities, etc..). But, life calls, trips are thrown at me and then I’m just pure exhausted sometimes, and so new section, yet! But, I’m happy to say the roll out of the new look is forthcoming in 2 weeks and in it you will find all kinds of virtual trysts with the big cats!

First up: Michael Ruhlman. This, very candid and seemingly shy guy (and food writer guru) and I had been oscillating for a while now on talking about his new book, RATIO: The Simple Codes Behind the Craft of Everyday Cooking. A few weeks ago, I finally had the wonderful and very laid back chance to talk with Michael about his perfect ratio concept, why he thinks recipes don’t really work and why he won’t be on TV anytime soon; at least permanently!

Oh yes, and that sexy kitchen of his I would take refuge in any day!

Though The New York Times gave his 3-2-1 approach to cooking rave reviews, hear Ruhlman disagree with their classification as a non-beginner book. His piece in The L.A. Times explains his thought process and makes it clear; yes, even to the beginner, that ratios of ingredients vs “set amounts” makes for less complicated cooking.  If you rely heavily on cookbooks, Ruhlman offers you a new perspective. Tres-Dos- Uno! I get it! How many times have friends asked me for recipes and I’m like “huh, what? for real.” I’m an instinct type of person. I go with the flow and let the aromas and texture do the talking! Ruhlman’s is more scientific, but the result is what you want: a perfect dough!

I didn’t tell Michael this, but he’s a great candidate for print modeling! His head shots are so clean! Now go on, visit his blog, pick up a copy of RATIO and order his chart! You’ll be able to conquer anything in the kitchen!

(though I don’t recommend throwing out your cookbooks!)
