#Collaboration #Baking

Any good cook or chef will tell you- Kitchen experiences often translate to life realizations. My pastry arts background taught me to follow the recipes, keep mis en place, and expect consistently delicious results. Recent kitchen experiences with chef friends have showed me intelligent collaboration is a necessary ingredient for growth.

It’s okay to deviate from your plans, and it’s okay to deviate from the recipe. You can substitute cherries when the recipe calls for plums. If you have almond meal, don’t waste time grinding almonds yourself. Decide what a “pinch” of salt means to you. At the end of the day, life is whatever works. I’ve found this applies to baking friands as well. It’s much more satisfying to share.
