Becoming a great cook is only easy when you are ready to make it easy. Do you feel people panic anytime you cook or they don’t just get comfortable with having you in the kitchen? Do not condemn yourself, you can be a great cook, just follow the simple tips below;
CHANGE WHAT YOU COOK
You do not have to cook the same food over and over again, sometimes a change in recipe allows you to widen your cooking skills. It’s time to get daring and dip your fingers into varieties of food from scratch. There are plenty of recipes which explain exactly what to do in order to create real food that tastes great.
CHECK FOR RECIPES ONLINE
Search for foods and how they are being prepared on the internet. You have so many choices that it is important to work out which sites you like and trust instead of spending all day collecting recipes, so be discerning in your selection. Youtube is a good place to see the process involved in cooking which include videos. Select trusted vloggers and subscribe to their channel.
WATCH COOKING SHOWS ON TV
Cooking shows on Television can help you learn new techniques. Find food of interest to you and maybe even get fired up about improving your cooking skills. Select channels that you understand the language well so as not to get your confused or mix things up.
TALK TO GREAT COOKS AROUND YOU
Talk to other cooks. Learn what motivates and inspire other cooks. Observe them and ask questions. This can be a fun and socially engaging way to learn more about cooking. Invite your friend over or visit them sometimes to cook with you and observe them closely while they cook.
GET STARTED WITH SIMPLE RECIPES
Start now with simple recipes. It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t work, you’re learning and you’ll learn faster by doing, than by thinking about it. Expect to make mistakes and some stuff that doesn’t taste so great. And for now, don’t worry how it looks work on how it tastes to begin with.
KEEP READING AND KEEP EXPERIMENTING WITH YOUR COOKING
Taste the food you make, then practice how to make it taste better. A great cook can tell by mere taste what else needs to be added to improve a bland or strange tasting dish and most of this comes from sheer practice and innate decisions. On your side is the fact that you care enough about food to give this a go, so you’ll get the hang of flavoring food in no time.
FIX YOUR ERRORS
There are basic techniques for correcting mistakes, such as thickening or thinning a food, lessening saltiness, and turning a failure into a completely different dish. Some mistakes cannot be fixed, such as burnt food (the taste goes all the way through). Learn when to simply throw out something and try again until you no longer make that error.
