What’s In the Window at Kanella

precision

We’ve been meaning to stop at Kanella for too long now, not just for the for the Cypriot fare but to take some good photos of Konstantinos Pitsillides‘ “vintage twitter.” The posts hang on individual sheets of paper in the window of his kitchen.

Grub Street captures a sheet that takes a shot at the catering profession. Us, we have this photo regarding precision, restraint and simplicity.

It prompts an interesting discussion, as much for the posts as their content.

Vintage Twitter at Kanella [Grub Street]

Our transcription after the jump.

Precision begins with the buying of ingredients and ends with the cooking times.

Restraint means avoiding the temptation to experiment every time you start to cook.

Simplicity is to eschew garish taste and over-elaboration.

Only by adhering to these three principles is to possible to create true gastronomy.
