You could say I’ve loved cooking all my life. I love the connection. I love that you make a memory with the person you’re cooking with and how that memory bonds you together forever. It’s intimate. Cooking tells you things about yourself you wouldn’t know otherwise. My earliest memories with my grandma’s involved cooking, baking, or preparing a meal together. My grandmothers cooked with me and encouraged me in the kitchen at a very young age. They instilled confidence and curiosity, my fundamental building blocks in the kitchen.
