Hi micaf1970! I think I'm about the same age as you when I've learned to cook my very first real (not fry) dish. I think I'm fourteen or fifteen years old. The first dish I've learned is pinakbet (Filipino dish). I think you can never go wrong cooking this dish as long as you have the correct ingredients. Very easy to cook for beginners.

I started cooking when I was in grade school. Not only cooking but also marketing. I can't remember my first dish, but I remember that my favorite dish then was "sinigang na bangus(milk fish) in guava base". My neighbors even teased me by calling "Miss bangus" :-)
