One of the few positive aspects of this eternal lockdown is that I had the chance to learn new recipes and techniques. Usually, I am too busy trying to respect deadlines, juggling cooking classes and assignments, so I just play it safe.
Week after week, I cook those old reliable recipes that are part of my cooking repertoire. Comfort comes from repeating a ritual, a set of flavours.
But where is the excitement of learning a new dish? Of discovering a new technique?
This feeling of excitement and adventure probably is not shared by everyone who is approaching cooking for the first time. If you have to learn to cook as an adult, because your family was not very much into cooking, or because you discovered this curiosity towards food just at a later stage, you might have the same question in mind: and now, how do I learn to cook?
Being also a cooking class teacher, I’m often asked to share my tips on how one learns to cook. And this is the theme of today’s episode, where you will find also some tips from friends who are cooking class instructors and food writers.
