Well, in cooking one had to prepare the A too Z of it so that the process of cooking would go on smoothly. That is what a good chef did all the time; everything must be ready for that adventure into cooking. The process of turning vegetable, fish, poultry or meat into a great dish might look easy but it is not; for to turn the cooking into a culinary heaven one must have the patience and the skill of the ritual of cooking.
It is often said that mom cooking always taste better. The reason is simple for mom always cooks with love. So if you want your cooking taste like mom's then sprinkle your cooking with Love. It is only with the skills plus love that one could turn out sumptuous meals at the end of the process of cooking.
