The Technical Un-Cook

Don't you just love those gizmos you see on TV? Do you remember the Ginzu Knives? Now, you don't even have to turn on your TV to see the latest and greatest! Due to the miracle of the internet, you can watch a cooking gizmo video right here! - Bonus! But Wait...There's More!

These days, there is an appliance for everything. The blender and the mixer, while still around, have been demoted in the kitchen as we add food processors, hand held blenders, juicers, ice cream makers, gelato makers, fancy toasters, pasta makers, bread makers and on and on.

It is a bit ironic then that the American household probably cooks less now than in any time in history. We have equipped ourselves in the kitchen like professional chefs, and then we order take-out.

The ingredients available to us have also never been as plentiful  and varied (or to be politically correct, diverse...), and as a country, our palate has expanded to include a variety of ethnic cuisines that would have raised an eyebrow or two 20 or 30 years ago.

Move Over Martha - Meet Rachael Ray

"In fewer than five years, Rachael Ray has radically changed the way America cooks dinner. Her perky-girl-next-door swagger, her catchphrases for techniques, and her dinner ideology of simpler, less expensive and just in time have sold billions of books and placed her at the top of the talent heap of food television personalities." Yum-o! The Family Cookbook, by Rachael Ray

1 Dear Anthropologist, you may be scratching your head in amazement right about now, wondering about the necessity of a charity that has as it's stated goal: "to empower kids and their families to develop healthy relationships with food and cooking.". You must take it in the context of 2008, when the USA's inhabitants were ballooning up to ridiculously large sizes never before seen in mankind's history. Many found this distressing, and many others found lucrative business opportunities.
