I started cooking at the age of 10 . This is an inherited love of mine since my father loves to cook . My grandmother taught him.

Frankly, at the age of 19 will in college. My meals were either tasteless or too salty. I knew something was wrong but being an over pampered child, I didn't know how to pin point the exact mistake each food had. I forced myself to eat those foods then compare it with my mother's food whenever i travel home from the college. This was so in order that I learn how good tasty food should really taste

The first time I ever tried cooking anything was when I was five. I attempted to cook scrambled eggs, and I remember accidentally dumping in so much pepper that the mixture turned almost black... It wasn't very tasty.

I think I was about 10 when I started to cook. If I remember correctly, I became interested in cooking after watching a lot of cooking shows with my mom and helping her out in the kitchen.

I started cooking at the age of 19 😂 The solo condominium life forced me to 😂. Anyways, I’m slowly falling in love with it ❤️ I guess it’s never too late to learn anything!

I think I was 13 years old. I remember making my first dish which was instant noodles😅😂. I made my own recipe and not according to the instructions.

Pretty late, when I went to college. I just cook to survive and bake for fun.

I really only baked until I went to college. I cooked eggs, stuff like that, but didn't make 'proper' meals. Even in college, I cooked a bit more, but instead of making meat/veggies/starch for every meal, I'd eat all brussels sprouts for one meal, all cooked meat for the next, etc...

I loved baking books, got lots of inspiration from them, but all the cookbooks I've looked at have just been so repetitive. I'd love to find a really good one one day.
