KISS is one of our favorite acronyms in the kitchen. It answers pretty much everything, and solves most problems. Keep It Simple Stupid. Somehow, it is also one of the hardest things to do. This is how a lot of dishes can become unbearable to make, or even just to think about making.
Good food can be simple food. Simple food can be good food. We have a dessert on our menu that has a grand total of 7 ingredients. Dark chocolate, eggs, black cap raspberries, white chocolate, cream, sugar, pinot noir. There are 4 different components to this dessert too.
Keep it simple, stupid.
