Welcome to CSC How To Cook Lessons Page and thank you for choosing to read our available lessons. 

 

Our food preparation culture has changed to such an extent that some of the most basic levels of cooking have become ancient in most households. Our society is changing at a rapid pace and the era of mass produced foods is upon us. The definition of a “home cooked meal” has regressed to an extent that limits not only our mind but our pallet as well. This ever growing change has made it quite difficult for beginners to enter into the world of home-cooking.

Need not worry! Here, we provide you with a solid foundation of knowledge on all the basics to scratch cooking. Some of the topics we cover are:

  • How to’s of Baking (breads, biscuits, cookies, meat, etc.)

Our primary goal is to teach you the sciences behind ingredients. We will explain to you the WWW’s (Why, When, What temp) of cooking. We will break down sample recipes and provide an in depth component analysis. Once you understand the first steps, you will begin to realize how ingredients react to one another and how each play a role in the final product. Soon enough, you will no longer need to limit yourself to following recipes. Instead you can use what we teach you to cook freely creating some of your very own flavorful dishes.

Whether you are a novice or an intermediate level home-cook, there will be plenty of free information available for you here. Let’s begin to expose your senses to the traditional and simple flavors that food can bring.
