I love the idea of cooking, all the possibilities, all the things that you can create. Everything fine tuned to your tastes, all of it can be altered and no one will give a damn if it isn’t exactly like the recipe provided it turns out well. You can throw things together and mix them and they may or may not come out delicious or how you want it. Every recipe is a guideline, it’s not a law that you must follow, you’re free to throw your ideas together and change the way it’s made. You put your own time and ingredients together to make a dish and you nourish and nurture it like a child constantly altering the taste until you get it the way you want it to be. I love how you don’t have to commit your whole life into a dish, that you can put however much time you want or possess into it. I love the fact that it’s a trial and error type of thing, maybe you altered it too much and it turns out shitty the first time, but you can always make that same dish again and maybe the next time it will turn out well. I love how versatile and volatile every dish is, every ingredient changes the way it tastes. I love how you don’t quite necessarily have to have the exact amount of an ingredient, but at the same time if you used less of this or more of that it can come out different. It’s great that you don’t have to follow anyone’s rules in cooking and you can follow any way you heart desires to cook something, but if you had followed someone’s rules it can turn out completely different, better or worse. I love the fact that there are levels of difficulties of cooking, some take more time and more effort, others not so much, but you don’t have to progress any further if you don’t want to. I love how you can nurture the food but you can end it’s life if you really wanted to. I love everything about cooking because there’s no wrong or right way,to cook, I love the fact that you don’t have to cook for someone, but for yourself. I love the IDEA of cooking, but I truly hate taking the time to cook. That being said, I do cook a lot though.
