Cecilia Lee’s Recipe for a Recipe


Several pounds or kilos of words
A pinch of careful judgment
Grammar and spelling as needed
Garnish with flair


Start with a vessel to catch your ideas. Add a number of words. Weigh them if you wish. Skim off the tops. Taste and add more if bland.
Pepper it with adjectives. Add declarative verbs and nouns liberally. Let simmer until reduced in size.
Remove most of the adverbs. Reserve them for another use.
Measure carefully as needed. Season to taste.

Serves as many as you wish.

Note: Most will keep 5 to 10 years when refrigerated, even longer if left out to age gracefully.

‘Thank you! It’s been a total pleasure mastering for Touch since 1988, with the 7″ Touch Ritual: Cut Up, which Denis cut onto vinyl when he worked at Tape One.’
