  • My parents are both good cooks but they didn't exactly teach it to me. From my dad I learned to experiment a lot and try new things. My mom I learned how to work in a very systematic, organized way. In the end, though, I taught it to myself. When I was around the age of 16, I began to prepare my own dinners during weekdays. At first, I would only make simple things and ask my mom for help. Later, I enjoyed being more independent and adventurous. Perhaps more than anything else, I've learned from my own errors. This is still true today. For example it has taken me several years to figure out the perfect way to bake my pizzas. When I finally did figure it out last year, it was a moment of great excitement :-). The same is also true for baking, where too much experimenting can be more fatal. For example I made a cake last week and it was pretty good but not perfect. I already have an idea which two changes will probably improve it. So, maybe in a few weeks when I have some free time, I'll try it again.

    • Wasn't your mother scared that you'd disfigure your face if you cooked at such a young age?

    • Yes, I am her caretaker now. I'm sure she's happy I can cook.

      We're having salmon alfredo tonight.

    • Well, I'd love to eat that dish.

  • My mom. She worked a lot when I was growing up, and cooking was one of the few things we could do to spend time together. Then, once my parents' marriage hit the crapper, I had to cook because no one else would.

  • My older brother. He's a pretty good cook, but he said "his stomach and hot grease" taught him how to cook. I guess they taught him pretty well.

  • I mostly taught myself living by alone for nearly three years. I also get inspiration from Tasty videos and random online recipes.

    • Do you have any tasty video that you can recommend? I've tried one and it neither looked nor tasted as good as I've thought it would. And after seeing the other front page video.. I've started wondering if those tasty videos are more for the American palate.

    • Yeah, I skipped the lemon juice and used way more bacon and cheese.

    • Thanks! I was going to ask you about the lemon juice haha last time I added it to a pesto sauce to follow the recipe, it was a disaster!

  • My mom is an amazing cook.
    She sometimes caters events, like weddings and parties.
    I’ve learned most of everything I know because of her.
