We were sitting in a dim suite at the Soho Metropolitan Hotel, relaxed in cushy furniture, and I felt like she was my food shrink, trying to solve my kitchen woes.
Lawson’s new cookbook, Kitchen, is in stores. I interviewed her for the Post and found her to be so beautiful and her husky voice so hypnotic. Her best advice: “Cook for yourself. When I cook for myself, I don’t mind taking a risk with an ingredient because it’s only me and I don’t have the fear of disappointing. You discover what works and you suddenly have this reward which is a lovely supper. You need to feel free to make mistakes or you’re not going to learn anything, and this is true in life.”
