Sometimes it’s just about the baking
other times it’s about mastering techniques. A lot of the times it’s about time, but all the times it’s about you. Taking the time, incorporating patience, applying balance, mastering a skill, perfecting techniques, studying outcomes, finding varieties, changing the look… it’s a whole new makeover worth every second. Then there are times when it’s just about the baking!
You see, there are many ways to look at any one thing, but in the end everything we do, and especially if we invest in our time and effort, becomes a rewarding experience full of growth. It is only when we rush, only when we do halfheartedly that nothing comes out of it, and we deem the experience unnecessary and a waste of time. Just like we brush up on the outside, the inside always needs examination and little tweaks here and there. The inside is the essence, it is who we are and unless we take the time and give it as much attention and consideration we risk losing ourselves to the whims of the outside world!
So take the time, and as you perfect new baking skills teach your inside a thing or two about patience, perseverance, balance, good choices, developing new skills, and adapting to changes… yes that can be learnt observing the beating of egg whites, balancing sweet and sour flavours, hardening the shell with a torch, spreading a dough, thickening a curd…
