I admit that I'm not a good cook and I don't yet try to cook a real meal I mean I cook before that it's fried chicken feet and every time I cook it's mostly fry thing. while my younger brother was a real good cook. He can cook many different dishes so I decide to ask him to teach me. Of course I was the eldest and I think I should really need to learn how to cook. This Weekend he will teach me to cook Adobong Manok and I'm so excited for that. Hope I cook it well and delicious. Wish me luck guys.

Good for you that you have the time to learn and study culinary. I wish I had the time and the heart to learn how to cook as well.

Good luck for your cooking! Adobong manok is the easiest way to cook, this is the first dish I know from my mother. I hope you will learn a lot from your brother because it is really important to know how to cook at least we can save a lot of money from not eating in the restaurant all the time.

I wish you luck. I don`t know what Adobong Manok is (I`ll go and check it at the web right now), but I would advise you to start with easy dishes and walk your way to success step by step. When you start doing something difficult in any field, it is easy to get discouraged. Luck!

How was the cooking lesson? Hope you did great with your adobong manok. Anyway, as for me, I also don't know how to cook. Even if I try, I always fail. I don't have the hands of a good chef unfortunately.

I got interested in cooking just recently and I have no experience about it. Lately, I've been trying to cook simple egg recipes and I've been trying to improve on m techniques.

I like to cook when there's occasions of course I do the cooking at home everyday. but it's different when there's occasion of event wherein I can cook some special foods that are not cooked daily. I also like to learn other dishes. I wish all the best on your cooking lesson

Learning to cook is something that is very important, as it means that you would be able to make meals from things that you might not have realised in the past so therefore you would be able to make yourself healthier. Learning a few dishes from somebody who can already cook is a great idea as it means that you can then slightly change the dishes to suit the things that you would like to do, and therefore you would then know that you would be able to cook them again in the the future for other people.

I wish you good luck in learning to cook! The more you cook, the more confident you will feel about trying new recipes, and as you cook more often, you'll get better and better at it. I love to cook, and especially to try new recipes. It gives me an opportunity to try out new flavour combinations and textures, as well as giving me a break from cooking the same old boring things day in and day out. The only thing I'm not very good at is pastry and bread. No matter how much I try, I can't get pastry to roll out without falling apart, and my bread will not rise properly. I've had to accept defeat on those two. But I will try anything at least once, and if it's a success, then I consider it time well spent.

hi there, its really fun and exciting when you have learned how to cook. hence, it is easy to cook rather than to prepare those ingredients though the bottomline here is, the taste of the dish that you have prepared. if only your place is a stone's throw away from my place, then i will be happy to help you then to learn how to cook.

I find its easier to cook when I get all the ingredients needed to make the dish on the counter first with the measuring cuts and spoons. This way your not stressed out, if you are missing an ingredient and need to visit the store first. Practice does make a person a better cook and its fun to try new dishes when you are ready to try new foods. Have fun cooking.

Learn how to cook the simple things first my friend. Frying is one way of knowing how to cook also. So, it will just be easy for you. If you have the interest to eat, i am sure that you will also learn how to cook.

Good luck! Chicken adobo is a great Filipino dish. Hope you do it very well. You really don't need to learn as long as you know the basics and procudures, it depends on you on how you season your food. Others know how to cook but it doesn't really taste good. I myself is good cook.

I am not a cook too but I find cooking a very fulfilling one. When my boyfriend then invited me for a lunch and I learned that he was the one who cooked and it was very good, I told myself that I am going to learn how to cook so that when we get married I can cook for him and our kids. I started watching cooking shows, compiling recipes, recipes that are easy to cook. Although I can't label myself as good cook but my family(unfortunately not with my boyfriend who cooks good) and friends have appreciated my cooking.

I am also the eldest and yet my brother who's second to me by birth is a way better cook than I am. I even used to burn an egg! But now that I am married I can say that I have expanded my instant noodles and fried eggs to stir-fried veggies. They're the easiest. And I have also made my own version of chicken or pork adobo.
