Guest Picks: Measuring Up in the Kitchen

‘Be the step great or small, let it be fair in every single part,” John Bright said.

Scales weren’t important to me personally before I jumped to the kitchen. Afterward, between calculating exactly what I ate and how much, and expanding my baking from fall cookies to 3 – and four-tiered cakes, scales became valuable. And, because I love to have fun in the kitchen, I like my own scales to be both entertaining. — Chris from Mele Cotte
