How my love of cooking started

Cooking was never my forte. Being the fourth child in the family, I  was never interested. Washing the dishes was my main job. I only knew how to cook fried eggs, fried fish and boiled rice. Since I got married, I was very determined to learn so I can feed my family and so I spend most of my time watching cooking shows, surfing the internet for simple and healthy recipes. My mom-in-law was the one who taught me a lot about cooking. From showing me different types of herbs, cheeses, flours, pastas and a whole lot more. It was so fun!

It was not an easy journey. I shed tears and went to our room the first night I cooked for my husband’s family because it was a disaster. I could not face them. However, they gave me words of encouragement, and from then on I said to myself that I should learn from it and if others can do it I can do it as well. Now I can say I am confident in the kitchen as long as I have a recipe. Lol! I wish I can create my own dishes. It will happen.  I have learned that if you really want something, you put your heart and mind to achieve it.

One day, I would like to have a restaurant or any food-related business back in my home country. I am learning as much as I can now, attending classes and watching heaps of videos to gain more knowledge about cooking.
