I’m not afraid to admit that not every recipe or dish I made has gone smoothly. Even if I put thought into which flavours to combine, the measurements I should use when baking or even the amount of time I should cook certain food, there are some dishes that are complete fails. And you know what, I’m okay with that. It doesn’t make me any less passionate and motivated to cook/bake. When I think about it, it actually encourages me to keep doing it. Every professional chef or incredible home cook will tell you that cooking and baking takes practice. Experience helps you understand which boundaries you can push and which ones you ought to stick to.
As much as cooking and baking is an art, it is an edible science. So for those feeling like cooking is a daunting skill to learn, just think, even Julia Child needed to learn how to whisk before making a meringue. Take it one spoon at a time.
