As someone who was scolded by a deli owner for trying to buy a stick of butter out of a 4-pack, I loved reading about Judith Jones’ attempt to buy a single stalk of broccoli in Joe Yonan’s, “What an expert eye, and a game plan, can do for the single shopper,” in the Washington Post. Throwing away food is one of my all time pet peeves in the kitchen. I take every expired yogurt and pepper gone mushy as a personal failure so I was inspired by Ms. Jones determination. A few months ago I attended a reading of her memoir, The Tenth Muse: My Life in Food, she kindly advised me to follow my own muse in her dedication. For now, I’ll just follow her example and make every ingredient count.
