Here’s the synopsis:
Explored through the lenses of the four natural elements – fire, water, air and earth – Cooked is an enlightening and compelling look at the evolution of what food means to us through the history of food preparation and its universal ability to connect us. Highlighting our primal human need to cook, the series urges a return to the kitchen to reclaim our lost traditions and to forge a deeper, more meaningful connection to the ingredients and cooking techniques that we use to nourish ourselves.
You guys, I cannot wait to watch this.
Food is so, so important, and the quality of food you put into your body is just as important, if not more important, than the quantity. Good food nourishes, builds, strengthens. Crappy food tears you apart from the inside out. Every bite of food you take matters.
I try, very hard, to prepare most of what my family eats from scratch. Although it’s not hard to do, It’s not always easy. It is, however, always worth it.
I’ve really, really fallen off the cooking wagon in the last few months. Blame it on moving, busy schedules, my fear of grocery shopping when we first got to England, but whatever the reason, it happened. I’ve been thinking lately of how much I need to get back into the routine of cooking, because when I’m doing it more often, it seems so much easier and more fun. I know watching this documentary will be a great reminder of just why it’s so important.
I’m already looking up recipes and getting excited about getting back into the kitchen.
What is your favorite thing to cook? Everyone has at least one!
