Friday Food File: Easy Tips To Start Cooking
Hi, how it's going?
Starting or learning to cook can be daunting but it doesn't have to be. I thought I would share some tips on how to get into cooking:
Find a meal that is simple and easy to make, with small amount of ingredients. They could be:
- Scramble eggs
- Toasted sandwiches
- Homemade pizzas.
These meals are not only simple but they have a variety of skills you learn straight away. The scramble eggs for example, involve cracking eggs, whisking, measuring and stirring. See? When you make a easy meal you learn new skills straight away!
Get a partner:
Cooking with someone that you know can cook is ideal whilst starting out is fun and helpful! Getting together with someone like a friend, sibling or parents ( for me it's my mum) would make it fun and create memories along the way.
Find a recipe:When it comes to researching and finding one recipe to cook, firstly ask yourself this question: "What you would like to cook?
The sky is the limit now with finding recipes. There are many options in finding a single recipe either online or printed. Here a quick list of where you can find recipes:
- Food websites and blogs
- YouTube videos
- Family and friends recipes.
- Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter
Have Fun:The most important thing to remember when learning to start cooking is to have fun! If you burn food, forget to add a ingredient or it doesn't taste good its not the end of the world because its all part of learning! Don't pressure or be hard on yourself- which I have done a few times . It's ok to do it all over again!
What are your tips to starting cooking?
