I enjoy cooking. Its the perfect mixture of design and development and is actually the first thing I did in my life that had me fulfilling my "PM" mindset and attitude.
It's my favorite hobby and like all good hobbies the skills I have learned over my 10 years of cooking --- following recipes, altering recipes, browsing recipes, tasting meals, traveling and trying new cuisines, broadening my tastebuds --- have all lead me to this point. The point in a hobby where you feel like you've mastered almost all the skills needed or acquainted with it and now have the drive to elevate your skills even further. That point in cooking (in my opinion) is recipe development.
Recipe development doesn't (generally) happen before a "chef" or "amateur chef" or "home cook" has mastered the majority of basic cooking techniques. Mastering the basics allows you to let your creative side run free because once you know how to create a sauce or dressing, cook various cuts of meats and types of vegetables, add flavor with fresh and dry spice mixes (that don't make you and everyone you feed cringe haha)... you have the ability to create and design your own recipes from nothing but pure inspiration.
I'm happy to say I've grown to this place. Through much trial and error, I've grown enough to build my own recipes.
Recipes I feel confident other people will enjoy making, sharing, and most importantly eating!
So, let's eat!
