I am a 20 year old student, trying to learn the art of cooking through my mother, sisters, and by research. Knowing how to cook is very important because it helps you become independent and artistic on a daily basis. Especially as a young gay individual, it may be wise to learn the ways of cooking because you never know who you might end up with. I have been lucky to have wonderful cooks in the family, such as my Grandmother, Mother, and my sisters. I want to pass down the many recipes that have delighted us all our lives.
