The Scent of a Kitchen Well Spent

My apartment smells like heaven. It doesn’t usually smell this good.

Don’t get me wrong, I cook, far more often than most of the people in my age bracket, but for someone who gets paid to create recipes I don’t cook as much as one might think.

But, every so often I get a powerful, burning desire to make the most delicious food I can imagine. Like today.

It was 3pm, the cupboards were bare, and I wanted boeuf bourguignon. So, I looked up Julia Child’s recipe, made a list, and went to the store.

This project has stretched my one-pot kitchen about as far as it would go making this dish. I haven’t even tasted it yet, but even if all I get out of it is an apartment that smells divine, it will have been worth it.
