How To Cook Series for Beginners
Our How To series concentrates strictly on the basics—how to do all kinds of basic cooking that most people take for granted. We started this because we realized that, for kids starting out cooking and for grown-up kids who leave home for the first time, these preparations are not necessarily intuitive. The dishes may be simple, but it’s also easy to screw them up if you don’t have a clue how to cook rice or lentils, for example.
When we first started cooking Mediterranean food, we’d never cooked couscous ourselves before. The first few times it was gross until we figured it out. Of course, we wanted to move right into whole grain couscous which wasn’t in any cookbook, so it took some effort to get it down. These little “How to’s” should make the learning process simpler for all.
Let us know if there is something that you would like to see added to this series.
