Here is a post from a blog I follow. It’s a lovely story about how the author and her siblings started cooking and learned how to make crêpes through experimenting.
It takes curiosity to cook like this and even to get started cooking like this. And I have to say, as in the story of Jane Goodall’s mother (who shared the excitement of Goodall’s discovery instead of scolding her for vanishing for hours), I find the parents’ reaction in this exemplary.
A quick note: The expression “trial and correction” is one that Timothy Gallwey, author of the Inner Game concept, uses because he feels “trial and error” is not accurate. We try, things don’t go the way we want, we correct what we do, and so on. Trial and correction.
