How do you define art?
That what you present, when you imagine.
Painting, dancing, music, advertising, writing and what-not. But, what we don’t understand here, is that even cooking is an art.
Cooking is that form of art, that does not only satisfy the one who made it, but also the one who’s experiencing it. It does not always have to be a five star-ish recipe or something of the top cadre. Simple and satisfying is all what your customer or target audience is looking for.
While in college, we all have that friend, who claims to cook the most amazing food, you would have ever had. Try your culinary skills in front of that friend, and all you get to hear is No. You’re doing it wrong. You are supposed to mix it this way.
The key is to start with the basics. Basics in the sense, that you should have a knowledge of the major ingredient, what proportion of it to be used in the dish and serving it with another dish.
Remember, when your mother asked you to learn to cook things like dal, rice and chapati and you snapped as if that is not a thing of your interest? How can you not be interested in cooking something that you’re going to have probably everyday, and love it when you feel like going inter-continental, European or other Asian dishes?
To know you true culinary skills, all you need to do is check out if there are any left overs in the refrigerator and make some mouth-watering recipe out of it. Whether it’s your secret Maggi recipe or a new dish, taking a step towards modifying the flavour of your food, always excites the chef in you.
