Cooking has never really been on the top of my agenda to learn. I personally think that everyone can cook. Its whether you have that special hand/palette that is needed. In recent years, I've been training my tastes buds by trying out different cuisines. I live in London, the multicultural city of the world, a city filled with restaurants and bars. My boyfriend has been a great influence in the culinary world. When he cooks, which is very often, he always teaches me everything that I need to know. After meeting him, food has been a major influence in my life. It is almost like the third person in our relationship haha. I've been lucky enough to have dine at some of the finest restaurant in London. I'm not a fussy eater, which is probably why I adore food. So much so, I've actually considered going in to the food critic career route. But that story is for another day... ahem.
I think it's time to tighten the purse strings and abolish dinning out from my diary. I need to dine in more since eating out cost so much money. I hope Lorraine will be my saving grace. Granted, it won't be easy cooking 7 days a week and to be honest, I'll probably won't completely abolish dinning out, because lets face it.. laziness kicks in once in a while! But I will try my best to rustle up some good and healthy dishes both sweet and savoury. And If at first I don't succeed, well lets just say that I have my boyfriend's number on speed dial.
The one dish that I am most looking forward to making is, my all time favourite, the creme de la creme of desserts ... Macarooons - I will, I must, I HAVE to master this.
