Is cooking one of your passions? Have you always loved to experiment in the kitchen? If the answer is yes, perhaps you should think about doing more to make the most of your passion for cooking? Not everyone is lucky enough to have something that they love to do so much, which is why if you can cook well and love to cook, you should consider making more of your passion.
Bearing that in mind, the question is, how can you do that? Of course, the straightforward answer would be to become a chef or patisserie chef, but as a mama who is parenting little ones currently, this may not be an option for you right now, which is why finding an alternative way to make more of your passion for cooking is so important.
Share your knowledge with your kids
The chances are that you already cook with your kids, but are you sharing your knowledge with them? Do you tell them what to put where and what to do or are you teaching them how to cook independently and think for themselves in the kitchen? Far too many of today’s young adults can’t even cook a boiled egg. Don’t let your children end up being unable to cook, share your knowledge with them from a young age and ensure that when they leave home, they are masters of the kitchen. You never know, one of them may even go on to be a chef, and all because you shared your passion with them.
Host dinner parties
Do you love creating gastro-style meals at home in the kitchen? Then why not put your skills to good use and host dinner parties once a month for your friends or family? Get creative and come up with some unique and experimental recipes to use, and get planning. As part of a dinner party, you will want to glam up your dining table with a crisp white tablecloth and napkins - you can get professional standard ones from specialist suppliers like Richard Haworth. It’s also worth thinking about investing in some matching crockery if you don’t already have some. Dinner parties are a great way to make more of your passion for food, as you can cook up a storm and share your creations with your nearest and dearest.
Start a small home baking business
Would a few extra pounds be helpful? Then perhaps starting a home baking business could be a great way to make some extra money and make more of your passion for food. Are you a skilled cake maker and decorator? If the answer is yes, then this could be the ideal option for you. All you would need to do is set up a business website, and social media channels for your business, including an Instagram page - Instagram is great for sharing images of your products - and that’s it. You could bake tray bakes, cupcakes and celebration cakes - think birthdays, weddings, retirement parties, etc. Think of the fun you would have in the kitchen!
If you love to cook, the ideas above could be ideal for making more of your passion. After all, they say if you’ve got it, flaunt it - so why not flaunt your love (and skill) for cooking?
