How to Become An Amazing Cook

Amazing Cooking has proven to be an essential piece of knowledge for almost anyone able to read this. It is a fact that some people try desperately to become amazing cooks but never succeed. The question is, why? There are tons and tons of cooking schools available online and offline; being attended by hundreds of people who have never become amazing cooks for ages. It all falls back to the sorts of sources people learn from. After reading this, you should get a clear picture of how you can become an amazing cook.

You have to love it

So who is an amazing cook? Try not to look at it from the English point of view, instead try taking a deeper look at it. Have you ever tuned to one of those food channels on TV and watched some cooking competitions? If you have, you may have noticed that the judges (most of the times) have a sort of passion for the food. Their judgement is hardly about the result. It's more of how the food was prepared, the techniques used and the level of professionalism. To be more specific on this point, you should have a great passion for cooking. It shouldn't be about the taste or outcome, instead it should be more about how it was cooked. The only way you can exercise this is if you enjoy your cooking more, instead of being stressed out when cooking.

Follow instructions (at times)

You are the amazing cook here, not the person who wrote up the recipe. If you ignore something he did because you know better, (not that you should always ignore the cooking instructions) go for it. It's part of your learning. If it doesn't work out, look on the bright side, you will most likely never make the same blunder again. Nevertheless, you may not wish to exercise this so much, only when you think it is necessary. If its something you really have no idea about, you wouldn't want to ignore the instructions.

Don't force yourself to do it

Never ever force yourself to cook when you don't feel like. Doing such would make you hate cooking and hence lower your chances of becoming an amazing cook. A great example for is in the morning. Many people detest cooking in the morning because they are still tired and gloomy. A great alternative to cooking in the morning is to just have some juice instead. Why not? Simply peel up a mango, throw it to the blender for sometime and take it down to keep you going till you are ready to cook. Doing such would reduce your chances of hating cooking hence increase your chances of becoming an amazing cook.

Learn from the right sources

This should be your second most important point right after loving cooking. No amazing cooks out there have become who they are after learning from the wrong sources. Finding the right places to learn some amazing cooking through research would be much better than running a quick search online. A good example of an amazing cooking blog is one with all sorts of information along with cooking tips and tricks.

With those helpful points on how to become an amazing cook, it should all be easier to learn from the right sources.

Happy learning :)

Great article. I would also like to add, don't be afraid to screw up. Many people I know don't like cooking because of the fear that they will mess a meal up. So what! Great cooks only become great cooks by learning what NOT to do as well.

I agree with you on loving it being the first step. "if you don't love it don't eat it" so if you don't enjoy cooking, just dine out :)
