Another thing I like to do in the weekend is trying out new recipes. Cooking for me is a great way to get your mind away from all the hustle and bustle of work.
I don’t consider myself a culinary wizard, but I can put a decent tasty meal on the table. I haven’t got enough confidence in the kitchen to cook completely recipe-free. Rather give me the instructions which I will then follow step by step. Once I made a recipe a few times, I might venture in changing things up a bit.
What I want to highlight here is that cooking also is an opportunity to learn. Learning about flavours, learning about timing, learning about kitchen-skills.
I feel strongly about learning things not directly related to your work as I believe it helps to keep a balance. And cooking for me is a great way for doing that.
My partner and I try to have a balanced diet. One of the things that can’t be missed from that is fish, which we eat at least once a week. And that is what was on the menu today. I found a recipe for Mediterranean fish parcels. Locked myself up in the kitchen, music on, poured a drink and cooked this tasty meal. Enjoy!
