Hello everyone, my name is Nick. I'm currently in university going for my 3rd year for a specialist in biology and minor in chemistry (mainly organic chemistry).
I'm not a very good cook, in fact, I'm pretty pathetic. My family and cousin are great cooks but I'm not blessed with that talent. I'm great at sciences but fail at cooking.
What I am good at, is making desserts and grilling stuff on a barbeque. I have never worked in a restaurant, and I learn cooking from watching stuff on TV and reading cook books.
Whenever I cook, there's always too much or too little food for the meals. Also, it takes me a lot longer than it would take most people (i.e. several hours). I set everything up that I need but am always worried that I'll burn something and sometimes do. Usually, the meals are edible but not always fantastic. If I try to go fancier, they turn out a horrible mess.
I'm much better with desserts though, so I can make them very nicely but you cant eat all desserts all the time
I guess what I came here looking for is to have insight into cooking. Pretty much any style, any meal, any techniques, etc... .
I'm not planning to become a cook or chef (whatever the difference is if there is any) but I just want to cook a meal for myself and maybe for others aside from desserts and being edible. Those 2 things don't always happen.
