What Can Be Done About the 21st Century Crunch for Time?

Time travels forward to the 21st Century.  Change compounds in countless ways, and yet nothing essential changes other than a very big thing –the  time we allow to grow our food, select our food, make the recipes, invite our guests and relax in their company.

Bon Appetit in their March 31, weekly newsletter described the malady of us 21st Century cooks and hosts.  They write, “The secret to a dinner party that is as enjoyable to host as it is to attend is presenting food that seems to be much more than it is, to create the illusion that you worked way harder than you actually did.  It’s all about the low-lift, high-pay-off dishes.

Our goal in Buzz Savories is to find and make and photo and give to you the most successful—”the champions of the low-lift lineup.”
