For context, I am building an open source recipe site that addresses the issues that I tend to find people having when attempting a recipe. I would love to hear everyone's thoughts on this topic!
Two years ago, I was using canned chili and soylent as input to my biological computer (ie. I ate food, I didn't make food). Once I was exposed to resources like The Food Lab and SFAH, like many of you here, my life changed. I was repulsed by dishes that were not treated with care, and my mind's eye was opened to this new state of being. Chicken that didn't feel like rubber, eggs that weren't stink bombs, salad that I would actually look forward to eating. I evangelized The Food Lab to my friends and family, I bought them the book and delivered it to them, I did everything short of going to their door and asking "Do you have 10 minutes to talk about our Lord and Savior Kenji Lopez-Alt?". But there was no crispy oven potatoes made, or dead simple spatchcock chicken. Why wouldn't people read this damn book?
