I got the inspiration for this creation while watching one of my least favorite chefs, Email Lagross (who, by the way, is one of only a handful of chefs in the world who has such rare spices as "papa reeka" and "cardamin" in his pantry) on TV. As I watched him standing back and throwing spices, from about 6 feet away, into (or "inside of", in Lagross-speak) the pot, I said to myself, "Self! This is a freakin' cooking show, not basketball tryouts!" Fortunately, since I am not schizo, "self" did not answer "me". Are you with me so far?
