I’ve been told that I cook well, that I’m more than adept at the kitchen and that at the end of the ‘magic spatula’, things come alive. Flour and eggs and butter and sugar march military style into my mixing bowl and a cake is born. A swirl of batter, a toss of dough, a pat of pastry and delectable aromas waft all the way from the oven to leave an hypnotizing scent, tantalizing and tempting even the most adamant dieter.
What my ‘fans’ (ok ok, I admit, in this case I refer solely to my two piggies who grew up eating my cooking having little or no other choice, but love it nonetheless =p ) don’t know is the effort that goes behind my ‘expertise’ in the kitchen. I wasn’t born wielding the golden spatula. The only reason I’m able to hold a knife and chop at record setting speed whilst carrying on a heated discussion with my then teenage daughter on the merits of eloping versus a full fledged white wedding (yes, my daughter has the tendency to come up with ‘fantastic’ ideas enough to cause any other mother to chop off her fingers if only in exasperation) comes from umpteen years of experience, chopping, getting scalded, ‘practising’ and painful sometimes less than fruitful trial and errors before I stumble upon the perfect recipe.
Advancements usually come too late, and that is the case when I recently heard about Amanda’s Cooking Classes Los Angeles and boy how I wish I could turn back the hands of time !
