Hello everyone, I hope I am posting this thread in the right section. I have some culinary experience (about 18 months) but at the moment I only cook at home. At the moment I live in the countryside, so working in a decent restaurant/hotel/etc is not an option. I don't have a mentor either. The people here like most of the things I cook for them, or at least they say they do. I am 24 years old, don't have much experience, no Michelin stars whatsoever, and my confidence in the kitchen finally hit the floor. I am not going to give up but every time people say they like my food, the first thing that comes to mind is "What would a Michelin starred chef think of this meal?" I guess that's a totally wrong approach. I am more than willing to learn new things and improve my techniques. I thought you might be able to push me in the right direction. Perhaps there are books that I could learn a thing or two from. I am perfectly aware of the fact that I can't become great in the kitchen, I just want to learn as much as I can. Thank you all in advance for your help and time.
