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:

Start small:
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:
    • Cookbooks
    • 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?
