This is slightly off topic, but let me explain:
About half a year ago, I quit my job as a designer for a software company. Since then I've made it my mission to "bring back cooking." Because let's face it, everyone here knows how to cook, but I know at least 10 people who have nothing in their fridge but beer.
Cooking has been an amazing, rewarding, and endlessly fascinating part of my life and I don't want us to lose that as a culture and society, even as convenience foods take over and time pressures conspire to take us away from the home kitchen.
So this summar I started working on a series of experiments in bringing back cooking.
You can see the short, 1-2 week "experiments" (or mini-projects) I've done so far here: http://mixheatrepeat.com
Do you guys know someone who would like help either learning how to cook (getting started can be intimidating if you didn't grow up in a cooking family) or motivating themselves to cook more? If so, please tell them about my project.
