The motto of Marc’s blog, No Recipes is “cooking is more fun without them.” It seems ironic, seeing as there are recipes everywhere on his site, but then you realize that he thinks cooking is best when “you just wing it.” The recipes you see on the site are to kick start your imagination and give you a starting point.
