I am not a good cook. Actually, that is an unfair statement. I might be, I just haven't ever done it. Never felt the ambition to. Recently however, I have bought two cookbooks. I am trying to eat healthier, more from scratch, learn a new skill.
My friend Jon does cook a lot. He says he enjoys it, finds it calming. I can sorta buy that - as long as it is small scale - personal, friends, family - and not a restaurant for example.
Personally I like the measuring of ingredients and looking at wikipedia for culinary terms between steps. I am hoping I stick with this new hobby.
Update - 2012 I did stick with it and while I am not a superb chef, I am good, my timing has improved drastically and I can cook many dishes now : )
