Cooking was always something that I saw my parents and grandparents doing as a child and as I’ve grown older I’ve become increasingly interested in it. My parents have almost always followed the recipe to create tasty food. My grandmother; however, rarely ever followed a recipe and still created delicious food. I joined this class because I want to learn and understand the reasons behind how my grandmother can just cook without any instructions. I want to be able to do it when I cook instead of just following the recipe exactly.
