My first time experimenting with food is when one day after school, I was starving but no one was around. So, I took measurements into my own hands and began to search for food to prepare. I ended up choosing burgers because I watched my grandma make it a least a hundred times. I thought of every ingredient she puts on her burgers to make them delicious and started to cook. As the burger cooks , my grandparents walk in and noticed a delightful smell of fresh grilled onions and turkey burgers. They were amazed and that made me feel very proud about my first cooked meal. Growing up I learned that cooking improves your skills when you are constantly challenged and motivated, especially by loved ones. I use to pretend to have my own restaurant and my family would play as the customers. I would prepare either hamburgers or shrimp because at the time those were the only things I knew how to make.
