Maria Zimmermann [kochenlernen]
When did you start cooking? Who got you started in this art?
My parents cook with simple ingredients but they like to try new things. So i tryed many things too and realized, that i like many meals my parents would never cook. I love Seafood and Sushi but nobody else in my family likes sushi. So i decided to learn cooking to make my own meals. I looked for a website and found http://www.kochen-lernen.net/.
Do you select and buy the ingredients yourself? Where?
I like to cook with Seafood. At the moment im trying to cook with wine. I buy it on http://www.chardonnay-wein.de/.
What is your favorite cooking gadget?
My Hands ;)
No seriously i dont have many different gadgets But i hate kitchens without at least one sharp knive.
Do you sometimes find yourself eating junk-food?
Definetly. I like good food but i can also eat a burger with joy. Of course i don't eat this Stuff every day.
What do you think about molecular gastronomy in terms of introducing chemical elements into dish preparation?
It's funny and some mealy can be very nice, but i think its not good to use it as standalone. Having molecular stuff in every meal makes it boing.
What would you say to a novice in the kitchen to help them get over their fear of cooking?
