My Cooking Inspiration

What’s cooking? Is cooking simply a household activity, to transform the raw food into cooked meal? My answer is yes, and, no.

To enjoy home cooked meals, yes, cooking has to be part of the household activities. I cook a lot, just to feed my family with plenty of home cooking. I have to begin my daily cooking routine with marketing, preparation, cook and serve. Cook and bake, there would never be “food not enough” in my little hut.

As a self-taught home-cook, I started cooking at the age of 17, simply out of interest. I don’t just cook, for the sake of cooking. I cook with passion. I enjoy cooking because I don’t just see the prepared raw food turn cooked. I saw loves and soul in my dishes. Yes, cooking is more than just the transformation of food, and it is not a chore, but fun & fulfilling. Cooking brings joy, and your cooking captivates the heart of your loved ones. read more
