Discovering My Love For Cooking


And it’s a delight

Cooking is an art form that holds so much potential for self-discovery and personal growth. For me, I always saw food preparation and cooking as a necessary obligation within daily living, but wasn’t necessarily passionate about the process. My relationship with food in general was quite neutral until I delved further into discovering a love for cooking, where every ingredient became a magical tool to awaken my creativity.

For anyone thinking about exploring a deeper relationship with cooking, the journey begins with an awareness of the senses. The overwhelming aroma of clashing ingredients, the abundance of texture and colour palettes, depicting the mood wanted to be created in the dining experience alongside the depth of flavour shapes the composition.

I first began my adventure into the world of cooking by exploring the ingredients, reflectively feeling the smell, colours, and textures to set the parameters for the welcoming and the final experience. While experimenting with combinations, I became intrigued by the different variations created as I prepared each meal,and opened up my mind to a new world of flavours.

Very quickly, I realized that’s where the most enchanting aspect of cooking lay – the timing and pace. Cooking present an enticing opportunity to blend known ingredients together in ways that we wouldn’t have thought possible. The end result for me has been more rewarding meals that provided wonderful memories and experiences.So, new cultures were explored through new tastes and flavours.

I appreciated that loving of cooing required a disciplined and patient approach which inevitably promoted relaxation, heightened self-awareness, and a sense of ease even outside the kitchen setting.

When one falls in love with cooking, the connection opens opportunities to experiment with new ingredients, textures, aromas, sound and combinations increasing a deeper sense of creativity .Combine this with the mindful processing of the textures, flavours and timing and moment in which you are cooking, one can discover and perfect their culinary skills.

In conclusion, by exploring new recipes every so often with a mindful and aware perspective inculcates a deep passion of discovery and creativity attached to cooking each meal. It has been a remarkable and adventure filled adventure for me to strive towards cooking amazing dishes thereby creating amicable memories in dining experiences. If one is contemplating trying it, I encourage taking the plunge. It’s a journey that fills stomachs, warms hearts, and provides a remarkable experience that is energetically transformative, hugely fulfilling and enthusiastically rewarding.

    I’m a lunatic when I decide to cook. I don’t *really* cook that often, but when I do, it’s a meditation all it’s own, from a simple steak to some of the complicated Asian dishes Uncle Roger inspires on Youtube. 🙂

    It’s therapeutic until I have to do the dishes. lol.
