Las Licuadoras

Thursday, June 15th, 2006

Well you see them just about everywhere. And there is an obvious history that folds back to food as work and how we can actually all work a little less. I mean never mind the washing machine. Let’s talk about the history of the metate and mano and the secret celebration on the kitchens when the liquidaros started to arrive. Never mind the old timer’s lament that the machine ground lacked what the hand ground had, in texture and in flavor. The time spent achieving this was not perhaps proofed in the result. And wait, there’s so much more….

And then of course the whole wide world opens up at your power tool finger tips and there is absolutely nothing you can’t do.
