What are some great recipes for those learning to cook?
Cooking eggs are a good starter.
Start off with something simple like a boiled egg, learning to judge the time it took to cook and the different types such hard and soft boiled. Then try making scrambled eggs, adding ingredients to another and cooking it. Maybe try cooking an omelette . Someone once said that you can tell a lot about a chef if he can cook a perfect omelette.
As you become more confident try making a simple white sauce from scratch and boil some pasta as per the instructions on the back of its packet. Add cheese and viola! You have made your first Mac and Cheese.
Look out for recipes that are for beginners, even purchase a child's cookbook so you become familiar with cooking. Some of them have some good recipes for you to learn.
Most importantly, have fun and enjoy your experience in the kitchen. Sometimes you will stuff up and sometimes you will cook things perfectly but it's all learning and as you become more confident, you will find it enjoyable and will be able to make more dishes.
I wish you the very best of luck.
