I read Marcella Hazan's book many years ago, and it effectively inspired me
to write a book about databases
[https://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-3-030-78241-2]. The food
preparation image is excellent for thinking about data organization and
granularity, for example. However, I think it applies mainly to Italian
cuisine, where every casalingho is an artisan, understanding that
creating good databases is a handcraft.
