When I started Cookthink’s Twitter account a couple of years ago, one of the first people I followed was Maureen Evans, who uses her twitter.com/cookbook account to tweet recipes in 140 characters or less. (I made a request for cemita milanese, and she delivered.)
According to Ruth Jamieson and Morwenna Ferrier in yesterday’s Guardian, the micro-recipe is now officially a trend. To mark it, Jamieson and Ferrier asked eight of the UK’s top chefs to create micro-recipes suitable for Twitter. The results are sensible, maybe too much so. My favorite, if only for the Joycean “turnevrysooften,” is Mark Hix’s micro-recipe for pork crackling: “Heat oven200C. Cut 1kgporkrind into strips. Boil 15m. Drain, scatter w/csalt, roast1hr, turnevrysooften.”
Leave your best micro-recipe (max. 140 characters) in the comments. We’ll send a book of macro recipes to the person who submits our favorite.
