I have always been a food lover. That I loved cooking, I discovered at 16. My mother would neatly organize recipes in her cookbook. The pictures in that book were not only colourful, but would make my mouth water.
With an aim to satisfy my taste buds, I grabbed the recipe and dashed into the kitchen. I followed every word and gram of the recipe. At the end of my first stint in the kitchen, I had pretty much surprised myself and my family.
Since then, the kitchen is my sacred place. It’s here where I find peace with myself – a certain satisfaction. I have learnt that cooking needs a teaspoon of understanding, a tablespoon of passion, and a dash of love to create, serve, and eat. When we say ‘simple cooking’, we mean it does take some effort to turn that appetizing dish pictured in the recipe into reality.
Cukzy is a reflection of my love for food and my passion to cook. As for all of you who believe cooking is a mountaineering task best left to the experts, here’s a little message – start cooking with Cukzy.
I am sure your journey in the kitchen would mirror mine!
