Jasper as Cook

Cooking is one of the best ways to spend a day, a week, an hour, or a life.

I love cooking, and I love writing about cooking. Selected essays include an exploration of the theory and technique of making a great sandwich, an ode to the joys of stovetop espresso, a dive into the practice of fermenting and baking bread (with my bread log), a history of the Romanian diasporic joy of making your own sauerkraut, a love song to a specific restaurant’s huevos rancheros (with a recipe for salsa ranchera), and some deep memories and instructions for how tacos can knit a family together even after divorce.
