Cooking with the masters

Cooking is something which most people think as an easy process. Cooking, however, is one thing that involves lot of mental as well as physical stamina. It involves lot of grinding, pounding, cutting and cooking. One has to decide about number of factors such as the spices, flow of heat, amount of salt etc. And these decisions have to be taken instantly. 

Cooking is as old an art as civilisation. In the earlier times, cooking was done by heating the food on conventional ovens. However, as time passed by and men gained controlled over heat, cooking techniques improved, and food became more sophisticated in nature. 

Fast forwarding to the modern times, there are many culinary art schools where cooking is taught following the latest trends and techniques.

Food- the love of our life

“ There’s no love sincerer than the love for food” ...and that specifically holds true in the life of all living creatures. I mean, just peek into the life of any middle class households, in India, for instance, and you will find that food is one topic that rules our life. The normal day in the life of a common man begins with “ What to cook for breakfast ?” Then, this is followed by deciding the menus for lunch and dinner. Food is a requisite of not only the body but also the mind. After all who will disagree with the fact that a good meal, does lighten up bad moods. Chocolates, as we all know are great mood boosters and help fight depression.
Cooking food is itself an art and a divine experience. Cooking, most people think  is an easy process, but it is not and involves lot of hard work, patience, and intelligence. One has to have presence of mind and decide upon factors such as amount of heat flow, mixing of spices, deciding upon the favours etc. Earlier most people learnt cooking e…

Life is one big party

Recently, I visited a big fat wedding. It was one wedding that left all the guests speechless. The ambience was simply ‘wow’ and the food out of the world. As for me it was the food that bowled me over. The platter was both, vegetarian and non vegetarian. The chilli chicken, the achari baingan, the pullav, the biryani and I could go on...were simply lip smacking. The chefs had done a marvellous job. Everything seemed to have been done with an eye towards detail.  Best spices were used, the vegetables were finely grated, and the food seemed to have been cooked keeping in mind the taste factor.
We all crave for such yummilicious food in our day to day life. Earlier such cooking were taught mostly in homes and were household affairs. However, in the modern times, there are many culinary institutes, which provide training in culinary arts. Here, cooking is taught according to the latest trends being followed in the international market.
