The other day, our club president approached me and asked: “Jinlu, you are a Chinese, so could you tell me the best Chinese restaurant nearby?” I said, “No, I cannot tell you.” I didn’t want to keep the best restaurant for myself. I simply don’t know. I cook at home almost every day. So I know very little about nearby restaurants.
Cooking for the entire family can be challenging because different people want different things. For me, the most important thing about food is eating healthily. I use this Healthy Eating Plate from Harward Medical School as my guidance. But for my husband, all he cares about is taste. The saltier, the spicier, the greasier, the merrier.
