I picked up several cooking videos at the library and yesterday I started watching the Jacques Pépin Fast Food My Way. I love the inspiration of watching a professional chef. Mother and my siblings are watching it with me and our favorite part is when he dices the garlic. Watching that knife fly across the smashed garlic dicing it is incredible. And the butter roses, I really need to give those a try.
The one thing is, he uses a lot of olive oil and when he says a "little bit" he uses what seems like overkill to me. After all, that would be a lot of walking!
