Cruel Cooks

What cruelty we are capable of as cooks:

We beat eggs, pound garlic, whip the cream, pummel the dough, dig out the eyes of potatoes, crush spices.
We drop food into hot oil, boil, bake, blanch, broil, freeze.
We also cut, dice, squeeze,scrape, grate, julienne, mince, puree, reduce, scald, sear, shred, skewer, toast and toss.
We de-bone, fillet, gut, shuck and I don't know what else.
Finally we bite and chew it all up and consign our food to the digestive system to continue the process of being broken down.

This protest is being registered on behalf of the BE KIND TO YOUR FOOD society, which currently has a membership of one.

Geeta, you are funny as usual. A very unusual thought though, and I loved it.

Keep it coming.
