Cooking is indeed an art. Some even dare to say and praise cooking as fine art. The very act of cooking entails creativity and requires you to unleash your imagination in some cases. The best results are born when you experiment and explore broader and wider horizons.
Why do people cook?
People come up with a lot many reasons to cook. Many claims that they cook because they are left with no choice, and feeding themselves on raw ingredients is not practical or desirable. Such people find it hard and struggle every day to pull together something edible. Some people undertake cooking as a profession and make good money out of it. And many, who do it as a profession, actually are very much passionate about cooking. There you have it! Cooking when as passion can work miracles. Such people explore, experiment, enjoy!
They often refuse to go by the book and prefer letting their creativity drive them to unexpected but delicious results. Food lovers enjoy being good cooks as well. They know what they need and what they are looking for, and they make sure that they get it. They are connoisseur with a fine and sophisticated palate who can pull together anything pleasing to taste buds from scratch. They don’t need anybody telling them what to do, bossing them around or tormenting them with ingredients and their right amounts. They sprinkle in everything in the right quantity because they just know.
How do I get there?
You can’t be a chef serving people finger-licking dishes overnight. It takes a lot of practice and experience to get there. So keep checking out magazines, cooking channels and cooking guides and feel free to try anything that piques your interest. Make attempts at delicious meals that you crave because that is the right incentive that will motivate you to complete the task and leave you with a satisfying and yummy reward, i.e. the dish cooked.
