Cooking, for me, is therapy. It is a stress reliever. It allows me to create and be proud of the end result. I like cooking because the fruit of my labor is very tangible. It is versatile and can be enjoyed by everyone. I love the feeling of pride from combining small ingredients into a wholesome meal.
Cooking is also a means of connecting completely different people under one roof. The process of cooking-the pop and sizzle of mushrooms hitting a pan, the golden-browning of searing scallop, the sight of a clean toothpick coming out of a cake…every action of food preparation invigorates me. Food nourishes life.
Why is cooking important to you?
