Except for baking – baking is science, cooking is art.
Learning to cook usually starts with finding some recipes on the web and trying them out in the kitchen. That’s great, but don’t stop there. Internet recipes are a great starting point, but they have limitations. Here are some of them, and how you can move on from them and get really creative in the kitchen.
I recommend successfully doing the recipe before you tweak. And make informed tweaking – look into what things like spices complement the things in what you’re preparing.
