Why is there a separate “how to cook” section? Because that, for me, is more important than recipes. I can almost see you pausing and wondering what the heck that means. Isn’t a recipe essentially a how to cook guide? No, it isn’t. A recipe is a list of ingredients and a procedure. A recipe is something you follow. A recipe does not teach you to let your imagination soar so you can be creative enough to cook without a recipe. That is something you learn by understanding what cooking is about and why the kitchen is a playground with no boundaries.
I know that a lot of readers appreciate the “how to cook” section. I just have to look at the number of times that a post is shared in social media networks and, well, that should speak for itself. It may not be of equal interest to those who are already adept with cooking basics but I cannot presume that all the people who browse the web for cooking lessons and land on my blog are more in the “intermediate” level rather than the “newbie” level.
So, came this comment from a reader. »
