I love to cook! It’s actually therapeutic for me. Sometimes it’s nice to just concentrate on making a nice meal for my family and forget the trials of the long day for just a few minutes. I watch shows like Chopped and Master Chef, and criticize as if I have any real culinary expertise at all; my wife simply rolls her eyes.
Seriously, if all you can do is make a salad out of your mystery basket, you don’t deserve to be on those shows! But, I digress.
This month’s edition is dedicated to all you ‘wannabe’ chefs out there. It’s for you home cooks who can whip up a pretty good soufflé without breaking a sweat. It’s also for those of you who consider anything above a frozen lasagna to be homemade. In other words, it’s for anyone who loves food!
Cooking healthy is the trend these days and did you know the Cabarrus Health Alliance helps to teach people how to do just that? We all know that some of the best dishes are made using wine, but many don’t really know how to do it properly. We’ll provide a few pointers. And, finally, with food and cooking shows becoming more popular, there is a growing number of high school students who are already learning the trade. Cabarrus County Schools and Kannapolis City Schools have a culinary arts program and we’ve got an inside look!
It is a shame that serving a homemade, freshly-prepared meal to your family has become the exception and not the rule these days. We hope this issue inspires you to change that trend. Perhaps you’ll even learn to cook together as a team. Meals prepared like that are sure to taste even better. And, if it’s a colossal failure, the local pizza place is just a phone call away.
