First, you have a beer…. its not just an excuse to drink, its also an important part of preparation and preparation is an important step to achieve “no angst cooking”. Now I’m not
suggesting everyone drink to excess or forget that kitchens are dangerous places and you may not want to be too impaired. I’m saying that proper preparation will make the process much more enjoyable, and after all that’s why we’re doing this. So pause, take a deep breath, do what you need to do
to relax. No angst, remember? It’s all part of the preparation. Maybe you don’t like beer, so have a wine or a whiskey, or recite your mantra, put on some music, think pure thoughts….whatever it is that will get you relaxed and ready to enjoy this process.
