In the dead of night (a hot one I might add), I sat down with the man (OR WOMAN) behind Flour Power Friday. We chatted about his..or her..love for cooking.
Q: Where were you born?
Well, some people call me the Batman of Baked Goods, so I would say Gotham.
Meh..I’m from Baltimore. Doesn’t matter where I’m from, it matters where I’m going..hopefully my cookies in your belly!
Q: What is the difference between cooking and baking?
Baking is more of a science, and cooking is more of art. Cooking is like Jazz..you can make it up as you go along. Baking has to be more precise. That’s why you use cups, scales.
Q: When did you start to bake?
I started to bake a few years after I began cooking. Was never really a fan of baking. Sugar, flour, and butter make the world go round.
Was it to impress a chick?
Well…yeah…women appreciate men who can cook and bake.
Q: So since you’re called the Batman of Baked Goods..what is your favorite “Batman” movie? Just for shits and giggles.
Oh boy. It’s a tie between “The Dark Knight” and “Batman Forever.” I’ve watched that one SO MANY times.
Q: What is your favorite thing to cook? NOT bake, COOK.
::takes cookies out of oven:: These things look SEXY.
I don’t have one specific dish, but I love cooking ethnic food. You’ll learn a lot about somebody, a country, a culture.
Q: What is your favorite thing to bake?
Ohhh..Chocolate Chip cookies. They’re the best you’ll EVER HAVE. The first thing I ever baked for this blog was banana bread. Not just any banana bread, BOOZY banana bread. Kahlua, triple sec, bourbon, apricot liquor..
You’re trying to get me drunk. NEXT!
Q: What is your favorite thing to drink?
I should’ve known.
Q: What advice would you give to novice cooks out there?
Keep on doing what you’re doing. Don’t be afraid to experiment.
Q: Why did you start this anonymous blog?
Well, I love to cook and bake obviously. But I think people can connect with food. It’s cool to reach to people anonymously and have great conversations about food. It brings people together.
