Oulipo Cooking

(Go ahead, look up the word in the title. Or just click here.)

There's a great article in the Indian Economic Times this week by Vikram Doctor about how dietary restrictions lead to innovative cooking and great food. The author invokes Kosher, Jain, and other religious based restrictions on food preparation and consumption that lead to innovative and creative dishes.

I've often remarked that I didn't really learn how to cook until I went vegetarian. Set up some restrictive parameters for your own cooking for a month and see what it forces you to try.

Do you by chance, know of any quality online food services? I am starting to order all my food online because of various reasons. (Health being one of them) So far I have found 2 services, Fresh Dining (an LA company) and Celebrity Foods, but you have to call them so they can talk to you about your need. I would really like any suggestions that you may have, so I can widen my list of quality places online where I can order healthy food from.
Thank you and have a great night or day…depending on when you read this. LOL!!!!

Quote: Note that Oulipo members are still considered members after their deaths, although dead members are excused from group meetings.


Been a long time since I've heard anyone mention them, Barrett!
