    Cooking

    How many of us on here love to cook?

    I love doing roasts with all the trimmings, cook a lot of game, pies, trout. Basically anything i can catch/ kill myself, or given by friends who shoot.

    I work in fastfood, and I don't know how to cook, and certainly don't love to cook neither.

    It's something like this for me:

    2008 - I like cooking.
    2009 - Getting a bit fed up with roughly the same five dishes.
    2010 - I don't like cooking.

    i love to cook, i love doing salads. made one saturday. marinade chicken in turmeric, freshly ground cumin, paprika, little bit of cayenne pepper, garlic, salt, little bit of sugar then mix in lots of extra virgin olive oil. cut chicken into finger size pieces and marinade for as long as you like, gave mine 30 hours to get it all in there. place onto a tray and cook for 15mins or until tender and cooked.

    use any salad you like, i use iceberg for texture and crunchiness and i also use rocket but its up to you, few plum tomatoes, red onion, cucumber and lots of olive oil. i use a dash of cider vinegar aswel to give it a zing. when chicken is cooked i lay it on the salad and then munch my face off. nice with a good bottle of oceans edge(new zealand) wine

    i love anything which involves tasting good. from KFC to the duck my old man comes home with on a late friday night full of shot. always on the look out to try new things and it helps when there is alot of meat involved as im into meat in a big way, just give me a duck and leave me alone in a dark corner with a bottle of wine and im anyones lol

    dont start me off on currys aswel, my old man is an expert on currys now, he loves finding odd back of dark lane shops full of things i cant even pronounce and luckily he a good cook so has come up with some amazing currys fair play, im currently trying to learn how to do them but i cant get my mind off eating the bloody things.

    so yea, i love to cook and eat lol

    Good to see a few on here, slightly worried about the amount of fast food consumed though!!

    Just done chicken, Roast pots, roast sweet pots, roast carrot and roast snips. snips, sweet pots and carrots also drizzled with honey for 15 mins just to make them nice and sticky.

    Enough chicken left over for a nice pie later in the week.

    I enjoy it, but need to be in the right mood and with the time to do so - hence it doesn't happen too often!

    I was a Chef for 4 years - Crap money for too many hours! Hence why i'm not a Chef now!
    I met my Wife at my last job as a Chef - She's an amazing cook.

    We'll probably open a restaurant in the future some time!

    You have to love cooking full-time and be passionate to do it as a job.

    I used to love cooking, still enjoy it occasionally but it's becoming more of a chore cos I do all the cooking for me and the gf. It's not that she can't cook exactly, just that she's not very good at it so when she does attempt it I always end up rescueing her.

    I'll get her trained one day!

    I dont really like cooking, but my girlfriend is so good at it, seems a shame to not let her cook for me! lol

    Im really particular about what I eat though, I like to pig out, but I like to still watch what I pig out on. I try to make sure I eat often and have highamounts of protein with carb foods for training etc. Also a lot of veg and all the other good stuff to keep me fit and active!
