One of the first things I noticed while thumbing through some of Ina’s recipes is that a food processor is a staple in her kitchen. While I completed agree with this statement, I did have one little problem.
I don’t own a food processor!
Yes, I know what you’re all thinking. “How is that possible?” Well, it is! For some reason I just never purchased one. I’ve always been able to do without it. Yes, that may mean skipping recipes or a little extra chopping work for me, but for the most part, it was doable.
But, now that’s all changed! Cooking through her over 1,000 recipes will be a challenge without a food processor. Plus, it gives me an excuse to go out and buy one!
After much research, I’ve decided on the 11-cup Cuisinart food processor. I ordered it online from Bed, Bath & Beyond and it should arrive sometime this week. I can’t wait! To me the food processor represents almost like a right of passage in the kitchen. I will probably feel like a true adult the first time I flick the switch on and hear the whirl of the blade.
