This weeks advice to you would be; to LOVE!
Love what you cook, and cook what you love!
If this is not applied in the kitchen, then it will show in your food. The flavours will not bond and turn into beautiful harmony.
The way I get into the spirit of cooking is;
1- Find a recipe I would like to cook.
2- Go shopping and find all the ingredients.
3- Play some music you love listening to help get you in the mood.
4- Set up the kitchen so everything is at hand.
5- Make sure you have plenty of space to cook.
6- Give yourself TIME, so you’re not rushed.
7- Listen to your instincts.
8- LOVE the recipe your cooking, LOVE the ingredients, LOVE who you’re cooking for, and have fun.
