I learned to cook over a summer when I fininshed 6th grade. Our local newspaper was doing a "junior gourmet" series that taught the basics of cooking. One segment was on bread baking and I spent the rest of the summer making all the bread for my family.
My mom was a great cook in her day, and I've expanded on her repertoire to become quite a good cook myself! One of my happiest memories has been cooking for friends who were chefs, it was quite an honor for me to have them for dinner (Thanks Stu and Mary!).
I've particularly enjoyed the Thai recipes featured on Rouxbe; I also love baking. My big weakness in cooking is working with sugar: candies always seem to sugar up or weird out on me, so I hope to improve my skills in this area.
