food is essential

is an art, just like music. When you miss an ingredient, it might be replaceable or not, just like an instrument in an orchestra.

There can be adaptations to make recipes easier or harder, to enhance tastes or to compensate a missing ingredient, or because two persons are needed and you are only one. Or to shorten the preparation time.
