Research paper for World cook book
When I started think about my senior project I knew that my main idea should be cooking. I had few more ideas, but cooking come up the most. After few days of research I created a plan to succeed in my senior project. Harriet Van Horne, an American newspaper columnist and film/television critic, once said: “Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at all.” With it in mind I started working on my World cook book, and as expected it was complicated but doable. First I had to take an online class there I’d learn cooking basics. My teacher was Cathy Erway. She is the author of a book “The Art of Eating In: How I Learned to Stop Spending and Love the Stove.” The course is based on this book. After taking it, I think she is very talented mentor and cook, because when she taught me on how to cook myself and not rely on someone else. She gave me good ideas on where to find fresh vegetables and fruits, on how make some dishes and salads quick, told me many cook’s tricks and tips. This was very comprehensive but easy to learn class, and I learn a lot. One advantage of this course was that I can take it at my own pace, with no deadlines. In the first day, after glancing at the course syllabus, I thought I can complete it in 5 to 7 days, but it took me 2 weeks to finish it. In each class of this course Cathy picks one new recipe of a dish, specific to a new country, and shoots a video of how properly cook it. We, as students were able to ask Cathy questions related to that course, and I used this option when I made my own dishes for the project.
For my senior project I had to find twenty recipes of international dishes, two recipes of drinks, and create my own recipe. Some recipes were really hard to find because there was not enough information for that dish or it was in another language. Finally, after few days I had a complete list of dishes and recipes to make them, and, apperantly, this was an easy part of the project. Hardest
