A warm welcome to The Cook’s Digest, the adventures of an amateur cook with a creative passion for discovering all that is culinary.
For years I believed that I could not cook, mostly based on some early disastrous attempts to impress … so I gave up. Given this experience, and that my wife served up some great meals, what was the point of me trying to cook?
And then something happened that changed our lives … we went on holiday to Vietnam.
That may not sound so earth-shattering in consequence, yet it was there (and Cambodia) that I discovered not only that I could cook, but that there was a whole world of foods of all varities waiting to be explored.
So on returning home, and armed with a couple of books, a few ingredients and several years of catching up to do, I embarked on a most wonderful adventure.
Starting with the basics … baking bread.
