why cooking is important

Midway through the production of this issue, the world changed. Like so many people across the country and around the world, we followed government guidelines and began working from home to social-distance and quarantine in response to the pandemic. For us, that meant (and may still mean) writing, editing, testing, and developing recipes; filming videos; taking photos; and tending to all the other activities that keep our business humming. While at home, we’ve been spending more time cooking to feed our families and ourselves, just like everyone else. Cooking has become a central rallying point for us during this crisis, providing not just sustenance but also distraction and comfort in a time of uncertainty. Fine Cooking’s social channels have been flooded with photos of “isolation cooking” and “quarantine baking,” and we’ve…

Domenica Marchetti (“Crostatas,” p. 66) is the author of seven books on Italian home cooking. She teaches Italian cooking across the U.S. and leads culinary tours in Italy. • The next big food trend will be… I feel like more and more of us will be learning more “survival” skills: planting gardens, putting up preserves, keeping a bread starter, using up scraps. • The most underrated kitchen tool is… your own hands. I like to use my hands for everything from mixing, say, meatball ingredients to kneading bread and pasta dough. Nothing is more satisfying than rolling up your sleeves and letting your hands do the work. • My favorite summer produce is… zucchini. I love it cooked slowly in cream and then tossed with pasta; sliced into batons and fried in a…

Tangy, vibrant tomatillos are famous for the zing they bring to salsa verde and the zesty, citrusy flavor they impart to many other dishes. Indigenous to Mexico and Central America, where they have been cultivated for thousands of years, these small, round fruits, encased in parchment-like husks, are staples in Mexican cooking, adding a sharp tartness to dishes when used raw or a slightly sweeter flavor when cooked. Tomatillos are particularly delicious with chile peppers, onions, and cilantro—often their fellow ingredients in classic Mexican sauces and salsas. Pair tomatillos with avocados, corn, lime, and scallions for a fresh salad or topping for seafood or grilled meat. shop » Tomatillos are in season from early summer through fall. Look for firm fruits without blemishes and with their dry, papery husks firmly attached and almost…

Fresh from Poland New Vegetarian Cooking from the Old Country By Michel Korkosz (The Experiment; $19.95) When my Polish grandmother bought a head of cabbage and pound of hamburger at the A&P, I knew I was in for a treat: stuffed cabbage. Braised in a tomatoey sauce and stuffed with beef and rice, those tender cabbage rolls are a favorite childhood food memory. As was the case for most of my grandmother’s generation, a meal wasn’t a meal unless an animal protein was somehow involved (even her pierogis had bacon in them), so I wonder what she’d make of Michel Korkosz’s inventive new book, Fresh from Poland. Indeed, Korkosz has stuffed cabbage, but he fills them with potatoes and buckwheat. His pierogis feature, among other appealing fillings, lentils and dried tomatoes; and spinach, goat…
