Cooking basics for beginners
When it comes to cooking, it's important to remember that everyone starts somewhere. I don't know anyone who was born with a wooden spoon and was ready to go. There is a lot to learn to be a successful chef and there is always room for improvement. Not only do you have to start with the basics of cooking, but when you learn to cook a new cuisine like Chinese, Thai or Indian, you pretty much have to start over.

This means that at any given point in your culinary learning cycle, there is a good chance that someone somewhere is better and/or less adept at cooking than you. Let this encourage you, because even the best of people have bad days when it comes to cooking. There are many people who cook for different reasons. Some people cook to eat and survive, while others cook because they truly enjoy the process of cooking. Some people cook when they are emotionally turbulent, and some people cook purely out of boredom. Whatever your reason for cooking or learning to cook, you should start with the basics.

The first thing you need to know is what the different terms you find in recipes actually mean. You'll find many new and sometimes unfamiliar-sounding terms in common recipes. These terms can make or break a recipe. You should find a good section in any inclusive cookbook explaining various definitions of unfamiliar terms. If you're not entirely sure what "beating eggs" means, it's best to look it up.

Another piece of good advice about cooking basics is to try simple recipes for a while before broadening your horizons to the more complex recipes that abound. Most recipes have a small note about the difficulty level, and you can read through the recipe to see if you're interested in making it, or if you feel confident making it. Remember that Rome wasn't built in a day, and it takes time to build a solid "repertoire" of recipes to incorporate into your meal planning rotation.

The good news is that once you learn the basics of cooking, you may never need to learn them again. In this way, you can continuously develop and expand your culinary skills. As you learn new recipes and hone your culinary skills and talents, you'll find that preparing your own meals from scratch is more rewarding than prepackaging ready-made meals at your local supermarket.

You'll also find that as you gain experience and confidence, you'll improvise more often and adjust recipes to your personal preferences. If you prefer more or less ingredients, or want your recipe to taste spicier or less spicy, you can make simple tweaks along the way to achieve that goal. In other words, you'll start creating your own recipes just in time. And for beginners, you may not learn the basic cooking skills, but if you don't master these basic cooking skills, you will never learn.
