Hi, My name is Ivan and I've come here as a culinary student looking to ask a few questions as part of my study. This looks like a great little community and I would be very thankful to hear your experiences and thoughts. I've been reading a lot of the topics here (a goldmine for someone in my position, haha) and I hope this is the right category to be posting this. You don't have to answer all the questions, I will find even a couple responses very helpful What is your first memory of cooking? Other than the final result (and eating it), what do you most enjoy whilst cooking? What’s the worst mistake you’ve ever made? Which recipe gives you the most cooking satisfaction? Are there any kitchen utensils you regret personally buying? What’s the best / funniest response you’ve had to something you’ve created? If you had to give three nuggets of advice to someone just starting out, what would they be? Thanks for your time and I look forward to (hopefully) reading your posts! Cheers cheers!
