"Food is our common ground, a universal experience." -James Beard
Up until a few years ago, I never thought that I'd find inspiration in the kitchen - but now I do:-) Cooking sparks my creativity. I love the different colors of spices and the smell of fresh herbs. I enjoy cooking for my family and finding new recipes.
What I love most when I'm in the kitchen is food prepping - chopping vegetables, mincing garlic, measuring the right amount of spice. Essentially, prepping my ingredients relaxes me. I enjoy every part of my cooking experience - the repetitive sound of dicing, organizing my chopped veggies into bowls, choosing the right spice and tasting the way it flavors the food. The mix of smells, sounds and tastes calms my soul.
Aside from prepping, I love finding new recipes. They give me inspiration to start cooking. I love reading my list of ingredients first - the measurements from teaspoon to tablespoon; do I chop or mince, whisk or blend. These new flavors stimulate my taste buds and the delicious smells spark my curiosity. In the end, I always wonder - what will it taste like? Will it be savory or sweet?
