Sophie's Wisdom and The Kitchen Whisperer

Wednesday, October 07, 2015

About a month ago, I had a chance to meet a dear friend, Heather, whom I haven't seen for over 20 years. Her teenage daughter, Sophie, is some sort of a horse whisperer. It was wonderful to see an old friend. To me it's as close to time traveling as you can get. Before I met them, I looked up the meaning of the name Sophie which means wisdom. It has become a very popular name.

A couple of days ago, out of the blue, the title kitchen whisperer came to me. It's drawn on me that my effort in recent years with bulk cooking and whatnot, I was striving to become a kitchen whisperer without knowing it. Without the correct words, the name, the goal, I really didn't know what I wanted to be when I grow up. So a gift of wisdom from Sophie, I learned something from the kid.
To me a kitchen whisperer is someone who gets the maximum results with the least amount of effort. The person may not cook very often, but seems to have food available all the time, out of nowhere like Manna from heaven. I don't consider cutting fruits or vegetables on a day to day basis as cooking.

For today's cooking session I was delighted to find duck fat in the fridge. I wasn't disappointed as the aroma of kale cooked in duck fat was out of this world. It went very fast as the gas stove is hot. 1 lb of Kale and 1 lb of spinach yielded 15 servings.

    Do you add any Heavy cream to this when you eat it? I am drooling! Did you feed your guests one of your amazing culinary dishes?

    When we were adopting from Bulgaria (all boys, they are chosen less often. :o(
    The main city there was Sofia. 4 out of 5 families named their daughter from Bulgaria some version of Sophia!! I like the name but shy from names too popular. I named my oldest (she's 39) Angela and there were 3 others in her kindergarten class so we changed it to Angel. :o)

    I agree You have found your calling! How exciting! You truly are the kitchen whisperer! You need to change your name to that on SP!!
