I cook for one reason. I want to be able to make food I enjoy. Of course I enjoy cooking for others, but unfortunately that’s not my motivation for learning to cook. Some of the most memorable moments in my life have involved great food. I want to be able to recreate that feeling on my own.
A few months ago, I started to put together a list of dishes and ingredients that I plan to master cooking. Many of these dishes I’ve made before, but I’m far from mastering any of them. I want to be able to improvise and add twists as I make these dishes without ever consulting directions or recipes.
Here’s the beginning to my list:
- Cheese Cake
- Crème brûlée
- French Toast
- Pasta (Handmade)
- Leg of Lamb
- Seared Ahi Tuna
I want to make the brioche buns for my burgers. I want to craft my own fresh hand made pastas. I plan on catching my own tuna.
