is cooking important to you (apart from nutritious meals) or is it something you do because you have to? do you enjoy cooking?

 

what kind of a cook are you? one who prefers a recipe or not.

 

if i didnt know how to cook, and i came to you for advice what piece of advice would you give me. 

 

what are some basic information a cook just has to know?

 

which website, blog, book would you send a newbie for guidance?


My MIL taught me how to cook. I'm sad it wasn't my mom.

I didn't cook when I grew up, my mom used to do everything for us, our only job was to do well in school.

A Master's degree and half a PhD later, I still wasn't able to fry an egg properly.

 

Cooking is very important to me, I must do it, and I enjoy doing it when I don't have a kid or two clinging to me for attention.

Home-cooked food tastes differently. I don't care much about it being "nutritious".

 

There are small things that you can't find in a recipe that you must know, and if no one shares them with you, your food looks / tastes like crap.

My first cooking lesson: heat oil in the pan before you make French fries. duh.gif

My last cooking lesson (still from MIL): with fish sauces, make the sauce, then place the fish in the pot. You won't be able to season and stir properly once the fish is in.

 

Basic info: you can make a yummy stew with 1 vegetable (such as peas or beans or potatoes),1 onion, 3 tbs of tomato paste, salt, pepper and paprika.
