There are home cooks who heavily rely on their intuition, taking an idea behind one recipe and using it to birth another. It’s a mysterious, creative process that many writers have tried to explain with varying levels of success. 

Niki Segnit is a cookbook author and food writer recently spoke with Good Food about her attempts to demystify this process in her new book, called “Lateral Cooking.”
