What is it about food?

Aside from keeping people alive, food is a necessity in life.

Home cooking is common, but doesn’t have to be. A few simple twists and a few out of the ordinary ingredients can turn the ordinary into extraordinary.  This blog will help to get you there, as well as pointing out some great places in Perth that I like to visit to test out the professionals work.

These days, there is an abundance of cook books, online recipe databases, food blogs, review sites which any amateur cook can draw inspiration from. Even the supermarkets have delicious ready made or ‘just add x’ meals that you can buy and whip up in minutes. There are whole television channels dedicated to cooking, we see television adds teaching you how to create using certain ingredients. Whether it be sweets or savoury, breakfast or dinner- there are now so many different avenues you can explore to have fun with your food. Food no longer has to be a task just to fill the stomach and keep the kids quiet. Food is everywhere now, so there simply isn’t an excuse for naughty fast food any more.

Nigella Lawson is a perfect example of home cooking gone right. Nigella’s success has come from her cooking in her own kitchen. She has no professional training, much like most of us. She has learnt everything she knows from ancestors, cook books and experimenting.

Nigella’s website is aimed at the amateur cook, with pages containing information on basic cooking requirements (such as different measurements and techniques), how to fix mistakes and daily recipes, tested in her own home kitchen that anyone can try.

On my blog, you will hopefully gain some inspiration and ideas from someone in the same seat as you, a busy home cook.
