However, you can cook incredible meals from simple ingredients. Keep it simple and make as many of your meals as possible. Other cultures have interesting cooking techniques that you can use in your own kitchen.

When food is scarce, innovations are made to get the most out of what is available. Fermentation, curing and preservation came out of a need to have food after the growing season. Cheap, abundant food becomes ancillary. The connection to food decentralizes its place in your life.

Listen as Christopher Kimball joins Dr. Mike Fenster to share how to love the simple foods you create at home.
