My Love for Cooking

My Love for Cooking

Good food has always been a weak point for me. But it’s not that I just only eat… I cook too… Yes, you got it right. I love cooking.

Cooking is a kind of a refresher or a stress buster for me and I never get bored with cooking. I won’t say that everything I cook are mind-blowingly tasty… after all am not a professional chef… What I can say is most of my creations come out well. And the biggest critic for my creations is my wife Manasi. Who else can get these recipes tasted and tested.

My love for cooking is not recent. I started cooking since my teenage days. I started cooking from the time when I was in 8th standard. It was necessary that time as my mom had to go to the places, at least for few days, where my dad was posted for his job. I being the eldest among us three siblings I had to take care of the cooking. It started then.

I got into full-fledged cooking when I was doing my post-graduation studies. I used to stay in a rented house with a couple of my friends and I was taking care of cooking – well most of the time. I used to enjoy it and never used to get bored or annoyed. I started making experiments with my recipes and the best part was my roommates had never complained.

My cooking started taking the flight and I started loving it more in the last 5-6 years. I got my wife by my side. She is very supportive and also likes to experiment just like me. We together try making something or the other new and innovative using the regular stuff. I have experimented with a curry paste in my cooking journey, which is purely vegetarian. That curry paste can be used for preparing dum aloo. I’ve prepared it and captured in this video. My wife tried some experimental recipe as well. One of them is a chicken recipe that I have captured in this video here.

I feel pretty happy while cooking. My blog earlier was more like recipe documentation but as the time progressed it got changed into something different that captures everything. But my love for cooking made me to think of a name that goes well and hence I came up with the name The Mixed Flavors.

I love blogging and taking part in the #MyFriendAlexa campaign and I am taking My Alexa rank to the next level with Blogchatter.

    1. That’s pretty cool… To be honest I too am a learner in the cooking world and its fun 🙂
      Keep up your learning spirit and take my words, you will enjoy it 🙂

  2. I like good food but not cooking simply because no matter how hard I try it doesn’t come up into something that can be appreciated and presented 🙁

    1. What it matters the most is to give it a try and am glad that you try… it does not come in first shot itself 🙂
      When you like good food that means you have a taste… That taste will drive you to prepare a good dish and do share the same with me sometime 🙂

  3. Ahh and that’s why I was wondering how come this interesting blog name :D. While not during the school and college years, I did get used to cooking during my worklife as having food everyday at different restaurants became a bit too much.

    1. Thank you for your words 🙂
      Some or the other time we need to try our hands in cooking and you started during your worklife 🙂
      Keep exploring the arena there would be something new every time 🙂

  4. Initially I used to hate cooking but now that I must cook and there is no other way around ( at least budget wise 😛 ) I’ve begun to enjoy it. I have limited resources available but I still manage to make something.
    Nice to read about your cooking journey 🙂

    1. Thank you so much… Glad you liked the post 🙂
      Cooking for me is always a passion and will always be 🙂
      Since you have started cooking and started to enjoy it am sure you’ll capitalise on your liking… Do share your cooking spree and recipes… I would love to read them… Please feel free to drop me an email when you post something like that 🙂

  5. I cook once in a while. The main issue being, I like to cook by myself. With no help or hullabaloo about me. But that is impossible as there are constant doses of words of wisdom and moving things around and so, I ensure I do it when I am alone. About to check out your videos now 🙂

    1. Superb comment 🙂 I liked your comment…
      You can’t avoid the words of wisdom when you are cooking!! But I would suggest to go ahead with your cooking spree, at least when you are alone… And don’t forget to let me know if any of my videos would have helped you 🙂

  6. I really appreciate men who like to cook. I know men can make really good cooks because my own brother-in-law takes to cooking sometimes and the results are pretty awesome.

    1. Thank you so much Anu for your kind words. I feel very much passionate about cooking. And being a Bengalee food takes a special place to me. I love to eat good food and cook too 🙂

  7. You don’t have to be a professional chef to be a good cook. My mom is a great cook and there are chefs that make terrible food… though, their career is of course short-lived
