What was your first cooking experience?πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I’ve personally asked some family members on WordPress, questions like β€œDo you love cooking?” β€œCan you cook?” β€œWhat food can you cook best?”

And Majority, let’s say 90%, reply in the positive.

So now, I think it’s high time I told you about the journey to my first cooking experience. πŸ˜‚

It’s all began…..

Well, like most males, I had an high interest in eating, but not preparing.

Like some guys, I was that kind of person that was always waiting to hear mom shout β€œcome take your food!!πŸ—£β€ and that’s when we ran with the speed of light βœ¨πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

But afterwards, as I grew older, I got hungry faster πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ (I don’t know if it applies to you). And it finally got to the point where I couldn’t wait for mom to shout β€œcome take your foodβ€πŸ˜‚

Then the little Ego present in guys, came to me, and I said β€œI can also do this thing”

I don’t know if it was courage or EgoπŸ˜‚, but whatever it was, it led me to my first cooking experience.

My cooking experience 🀣🀣

Then at that moment, I felt like a superhero πŸ¦Έβ€β™‚οΈ I felt like Jean in Xmen, I felt that if superheroes could control stuffs with their minds, I could also control cooking with my mind.πŸ˜‚

Okay, I know you are also predicting how this is going to end, but hang on little πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Then I went to the kitchen and it was like I wasn’t familiar with it. I was only familiar with the kitchen when I wanted to take my food, not when I wanted to cook my foodπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Fast forward…..

I finally cookedπŸ₯³πŸ₯³πŸ₯³πŸ₯³ but I used my head to cook. I didn’t look for recipes, I just used pure instinct πŸ˜‚

You should really try cooking with your instincts and not with guide πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Putting salt πŸ§‚, pepper 🌢, etc… was purely based on my mind and it’s only when my mind said β€œstop” that I knew the measurement was okay 🀣

Parents Review πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

My parents came back from their outing, and when they saw what I did. They were very happy. 😊 at least, I had taken up interest in kitchen activities πŸ˜‡

Then they asked me if my friends were coming over. I said β€œNO”. But they asked me again.

It was then I realized I had cooked for 20 🀣🀣🀣🀣and we are just 5 in our family. I cooked a local food called β€œEba”

So I guess my instinct didn’t put me well on the quantity measurement after-all πŸ˜…

πŸ˜…so don’t cook with your instinct, continue with your recipe guide πŸ˜…, except you are an expert πŸ˜‰

This is similar to the food I cooked. πŸ˜ƒ

So that’s my first cooking experience πŸ˜ƒ.

It was hunger that prompted me to cooking. And from there, I took up interest in cooking some simple foods, not the complex ones πŸ˜‚

So what’s your first experience of cooking?

You can just briefly tell us, or tell us the detailsπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ here’s a good time to have a good laugh πŸ˜†πŸ€£πŸ€£

  1. haha what an experience! I hope you finished the 20 servings πŸ˜›

    My first experience was also out of pure need and survival. It was when I started my college. I had to be away from my parents living in a new city all by myself in a flat with one roomie.

    She taught me how to cook and we took turns in cooking and doing other household chores. It was fun though!!

  2. The first time I was properly in the kitchen to make food was when I made bread rolls at school. I strolled out of school, feeling very pleased of myself, and offered some to my parents. They were disgusting and undercooked. They ended up unceremoniously thrown in the bin. My cooking experiences from then on have improved!πŸ˜‚

  4. A boring dish… I was 5 years old when I cooked. My first dish I learned to cook was oat porridge. My Scottish father taught me, “it’s what Scottish people eat” , he said. I remember it was on a camping trip. I still eat oats today.

  5. We learn from our mistakes. I mean that’s how you growπŸ˜„
    Great effort on your part tho , and brownie points for eyeballing the measurements 🀣 that takes a lot of courage , for sure!

    I think the first thing that I ever tried cooking was flatbread. It’d turned out to be okay. Nothing spectacular but I think I got the job done🀣
    Tho my cooking skills have def improved since then but there are still some misshaps happening here and thereπŸ˜›

    Nice knowing about your cooking experience. T’was def interesting πŸ˜„

  6. At 12 years old I fried the prettiest chicken ever seen in my eyes, but when my family bit into it blood dripped down their faces. I am now teleworking and trying to learn how to make simple, delicious and fulfilling meals for my husband. He is the chef in the family and has spoiled me. I want to have delicious meals ready for him so I am following cooking blogs like this one. I really need recipes.

  7. Haha!
    Its usually hunger that prompt to cook for the very first time!
    Well, my cooking experiences are okay except for the very recent one!
    I baked a chocolate cake recently,
    My siblings/family very excitedly gathered around to cut the cake,
    And to my surprise, it was undercooked in the middleπŸ˜‚,
    And i defended myself by saying, that it was a chocolate β€œlava” cake.
    Hehe πŸ˜‰

      I really love the very fast way you defended yourself πŸ˜ƒ

      And because your siblings/family didn’t really know much about the preparation of chocolate cake, they didn’t know it was undercooked πŸ˜‚

  8. That looks delicious… and I loved reading about your experience πŸ˜‰
    I dabbled in cooking from a young age…
    I think the funniest was the first time I made a roast chicken though. I actually still don’t really like handling raw meat… but those days I was truly awful at it.
    There I was, at the sink, trying to rinse the chicken off – not looking at what I was doing, pulling the most interesting faces, inwardly freaking out. Not realising it would get worse… I needed to remove the plastic bag of giblets inside.
    One would swear I was a surgeon by this stage. There was no way I was touching that bag! I used mini tongs… and ‘ewwwww’ ‘ewwwww’ ‘ewwww’d my way to the dustbin thereafter.
    In the end, the chicken tasted great though πŸ˜‰

  9. Hey… Loved your experience. Funny!!!
    I am not a chef, but I do cook good food. That’s because, when I was small, I was never given the chance to even go near the stove. I grew curious and I had to experiment with the leaves and flowers when I was so small. And then, when my parents were away,I cooked with the help of my grandmother on a video call. I still remember her scolding me when I accidentally poured water to boiling oil…πŸ˜…. It was an accident, I swear!
    And then, the whole food, fortunately, turned out to be good. Mum and papa loved it!!!
    Thanks to God and obviously, my grandmother!!

    1. πŸ₯°I’m happy to hear that you began the great journey of being a good cook at such an early age.

      It’s expected, maybe because of our in-exposure, we are not always allowed near the stove at an early age πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      Grandma! 😊

      πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚you poured water to boiling oilπŸ˜‚ but I’m glad you are alright, it could be worse πŸ™

  11. I think the first time I ever cooked was making my dad a PB&J sandwich because my mom was away and my dad was running late from work and going to play tennis and didn’t have time to cook anything. I remember it was the first time I felt like I “took care” of my dad (this happened when I was in elementary school). That kind of stuck with me and I think i still use cooking to show my love and care for others.

      It’s always a good feeling when you use cooking to show love to others. You will receive a sense of goodness in your heart also.

  12. My first cooking experience was when I was 5 πŸ˜€ I decided to make sandwiches to my Granny πŸ˜€ She said they were amazingly delicious πŸ˜€ Still don’t know if she was pretending or not… Nevertheless, now I am very good in cooking anything and I truly enjoy it. Maybe that compliment many years ago from my Gran gave me more confidence for my future kitchen explorations πŸ™‚

      I guess she wasn’t pretending. She really appreciated it and yeah, her compliment definitely pushed you to being a better cook.
