How to Boil Water
"There is a prevailing theory that we need to know much more than we do in order to feed ourselves well. It isn't true. Most of us already have water, a pot to put it in, and a way to light a fire. This gives us boiling water, in which we can do more good cooking than we know."

So begins Tamar Adler's book of essays on pleasurable, grounded cooking.  We can make wonderful meals of whatever we have, she explains, using simple, humble techniques and basic tools. Taking advantage of a pot of well-seasoned boiling is both fundamental and the perfect metaphor for her philosophy.

In this combination Hands On/Demonstration Class, begin with a pot of boiling water, and taste and talk your way toward the sort of meal that you want to eat.
