When I was already in high school when my mom taught how to work on with simple recipe, it never been easy because my mind that time was't in the cooking i had no interest I just have this thought whatever be will be the outcome let it be, but later on as I age I realize the importance of cooking how will I able to eat my favorite dish If I don't know how to prepare it so I tug along with 2 of my friends and they taught me how to do simple dish, Lolz. The struggle is there but it paid off and I succeed and I continue learning.

I started cooking at the age of 12. My mother told me that its really necessary to know how to cook, because it will enhance my cooking skills when will be able to proceed in college. :)

So young I don't even remember. I DO remember coming into the kitchen one Saturday morning to find my three year old sister scrambling eggs all by her lonesome. I can only assume that as soon as we were all big enough to push a chair over to the stove we've been cooking. Everyone in my immediate family cooks for themselves.

I think I might have been about 8 or 9. My mother hated cooking. So my older brother and I learned to take over fairly early.

I was helping in the kitchen from age 6 with cooking and cleaning. I never liked cooking. When I was 11 I remember making dinner, by myself, for our family: toasties (or jaffles as they're called here in Australia) in a sandwich press. By the time I left to go to uni I could make rice (in a rice cooker) and a couple of not very tasty curries. My sister and I were always expected to help in the kitchen; my brother never did. My mother never liked me and was a terrible cooking teacher. She screamed at me every time I did something wrong so I avoided her and did the bare minimum (washing rice and cleaning dishes) mostly. My sis was always glued to my mother and she was the better cook. I can cook now, just had to learn by myself.

I started cooking at age 8. My mother used to cook food and sell it to workers near our house. I always help her, we wake up at 3am go to market, prepare everything before start cooking. I learned everything from her! 😉
