Google Cooking

I love this article about using Google to search for recipes using the obscure ingredients hanging around one’s cupboard. I was unaware that there is actually a coined term for this activity: “Google cooking.”

“It’s good when you don’t have a clear idea of what to make with an odd combination of ingredients,” said Hourihan, 60, who Google cooks at least once a week. “You take your chances, but it really pays off. I have never put in a combination that I did not find a recipe for.”

And therein lies the appeal of Google cooking: It helps you build a meal from bottom up (vs. recipe down), while also purging your kitchen of languishing edibles, aging produce and meats, or overstocked perishables (i.e., that crate of pineapples bought impulsively during a Hawaiian vacation).
