Are you a new beginner in cooking? Read this


Learning to cook is an essential life skill. According to research carried out by SafeFood, men and especially young adults have low confidence when it comes to cooking their own food. Picky eating and time pressures were identified in the research as barriers to home cooking.


No matter how “good” the food you think you’re getting at restaurants, or pre-prepared food you buy at the grocery stores is, it will never match the health benefits of anything you cook at home. Homecooked food is the best way to be sure of what you are eating.

So before you start, take a look at the following points for cooking.

  • Figure out what you like. Think about different types of food that you would like to get good at making. Do you want to make lasagne? Make it! Have you always wanted to cook rice? Do it! 
  • Choose an easy cookbook. A cookbook should be easy to understand and also, easy to follow the steps that are indicated. Apart from physical cookbooks, there are also millions of them in online versions. Note: If you have trouble visualizing what you’re supposed to do based on written descriptions, watch videos so you can see a demonstration. From there you can follow the video step by step on how to cook a recipe. 
  • Start small. If you are a new beginner, it’s recommended to start with easy recipes that have few ingredients in them. 
  • Read the recipe a few times before you start. Before you start to cook, take time to familiarize yourself with the steps involved and the materials that will be used. This is an important step so you don’t encounter any unpleasant surprises during the cooking process! 
  • Get everything ready before you start. Before you begin, make sure you have everything that you need ready. It won’t be fun if you start panicking, trying to find something you need to use fast! 
  • Taste the food now and then. Flavors change throughout the cooking process. Chefs recommend tasting the food as you’re making it. 
  • Ask for help. Ask someone to lend you a helping hand with the cooking, or you can simply ask for advice. 
  • Don’t be afraid to fail. The first time you try a new recipe, it might not always turn out the way you wanted. And that is okay!

They say practice makes perfect. The more you cook, the better you’ll get. Just be patient with yourself in the meantime.

Remember, even if you fail, you are learning.
