Cooking is like Science.

Nasi lemak (coconut rice), chicken rendang, shitake sambal, assam heh (tamarind prawns), & pengat pisang (banana stewed in coconut milk & palm sugar).

Cooking and baking are like science, really.

Step 1: Safety first
Step 2: Learn the basics
Step 3: Master a protocol (recipe)
Step 4: Troubleshoot
Step 5: Try something new
Step 6: Get creative

I hated cooking as a child, but now, when I'm stressed out, or in need of some down time, I grab my pestle and mortar and head to the kitchen to whip something up.

Best thing ever.
