The Origin Of A Chef In Quarantine

You know where this is going and you clicked on it, so come along.

Living in times as strange as this can make you want to do some strange things. In all my 22 years on this planet, I have never made myself a meal. I have never been the source of my own sustenance. And honestly, I never really cared to change that. It made no difference to me where the food came from as long as I was fed. Yes. I was a spoilt child. Spare me the judgement.

Then there was a pandemic. I was forced to stay inside. I got sick of eating the same things they made at home. I was REALLY bored and I decided that this was reason enough to start cooking. And I did. Let me tell you something, it isn’t that hard. Cooking isn’t what it used to be. You are spared from awful experiences like getting bossed around by someone who can cook, or having to memorise tedious recipes. You just pull up your phone and type what you want to make and bada bing bada boom, there you go. Done. Something wrong when you’re halfway through? Just ask the internet what to do again. We live in times where anything can be replicated in a DIY and cooking just happens to be at the top of that list.

The most surprising outcome from this already unexpected adventure is that, I seem to love cooking? What? Yeah, I love it. It is so much fun. It caters(pun intended) to every little need of the perfectionist in me. Cooking is such a satisfying task because when you’re done, you get to eat that deliciousness you just slaved over. And to add to that, I’ve been taking my health and fitness quite seriously so cooking my meals allows me to control what I eat every single day. It has been such a win-win-win situation up in here.

If you’re wondering why I took the time to type all this down, I just wanted to let you know in advance so you’re not completely left in the dark when you see me posting recipes and my experiences with cooking here. It is all I do and I want to write about it. If you’re interested in some recipes with a focus on health without limiting yourself too much, follow my blog and stick around. I will be posting my recipes often. I make indulgent dishes like Chicken Biriyani, Pizza, Cheese stuffed starters as well as desserts that substitute added sugar with fruit. I just want to build a community here that discusses the art of cooking and finding ways to substitute ingredients that are unavailable as recent situations have made it hard to go shopping for groceries. I hope you enjoy what is to come. 🙂 Please leave a comment if you have any requests, I would love to figure out the best concoction for any dish you’d like to see me make.
