My first reaction to Michael Pollan’s Cooked was “BLEURGHHHH”!!!!?!!!!
Why on earth did I keep on reading the book even though the first part is all about roasting pigs, I don’t know. I still remember how much I hated the pictures this chapter invokes.
But then … my suffering paid off.
First, I induced some of our favorite veggies to ferment and while waiting for the results, I bought and used a grain mill.
I don’t understand why I hadn’t done it much earlier … the bread is delicious and it certainly makes fun to mill one’s wheat (or rye or …).
