When you leave your home for the first time, Yotam Ottolenghi and his relatives are not your friends. Even if you manage to cook one of their masterpieces containing millions of ingredients for your roommates, you will invariably spend the next two months wadding remaining sumac handles. Instead, buy a load of pasta and a ton of canned tuna and you’ll never go hungry.

It will take time to get used to these differences, but it will be much easier if you do not escape each time you see a half-beard out of the trunk.
