I have learned so much that it is difficult to put it into words.
I think that some of the elements of the course that stood out and changed my cooking the most was learning the order of which to add ingredients (especially salt). I’ve noticed that my cooking has become a lot more certain. I used to cook without bounds and would often fail when experimenting, but now I feel confident letting my ideas wander and finding solutions to make these ideas possible.
Also, as someone who is nineteen and guessed my way through making meals my whole life, learning basic cooking methods like steeping vegetables, and creating braising liquids/ marinades have transformed my views on what is possible in an un-intimidating and clear fashion.
