Just watched a bunch of cooking tips videos and now I want to talk about cooking.
It’s not something that’s generally on my mind, but after I watch someone make a cool dish or explain how some arcane culinary trick works I can’t help but be pumped about cooking. Hell, I’d even go into the kitchen later that day and whip up something good, if it weren’t for how daunting the pre-cooking process seems.
In an ideal would you’d have a kitchen full of all the tools you’d ever need, and a fridge and cabinet with all ingredients you could dream of using. The world we live in is not ideal though, so you have to hope you have all the right gear, make a trip to the store and get what you need, and so on. This means you can’t just cook any old thing, you have to plan ahead for it.
As weird as it sounds, that feels like a huge barrier keeping me from going wild and trying things out. That, and the fact I’d probably have to cook for the entire family, including someone who isn’t very easy to please.
