I call myself an intuitive cook – that means I usually don’t use recipes. It also means that sometimes my cooking flops like it did the other day when I ad libbed a green curry chicken. The problem is I don’t have much skill at Thai cooking. I have a lot more skill at eating Thai food. So it wasn’t surprising that my soup turned out poorly. I didn’t know how to correct the seasonings. Everything I tried made it worse.
Lesson learned (hopefully).
The solution is obvious – add to my skills as a cook. My city offers a variety of whole foods cooking classes at the Community Mercantile. I can sign up for cooking classes. I can also scour the web for recipes and cooking demos like I did this morning.
How fun! See how a problem (ruining my dinner) can turn into fun…..
