Where is the button for "inconsistent"?
I rated myself as good, which I am much of the time. I have periods of not wanting to spend much time in the kitchen as other activities are taking up time and attention. At other times, I don't pay attention to what I am doing and turn out some awful failures! Sometimes my cooking is to die for; other times, to die of.
On the whole I am not good at following recipes. I have a substantial collection of recipe books, which I like to read - but when I cook, either I make it up as I go along, or I adjust the recipe ... which can work well sometimes but not so well other times. My best performances in the kitchen tend to be soups, stews, casseroles, curries - bit gutsy peasant dishes full of strong flavours and textures. I enjoy cooking for gatherings of 6 - 12 people.
I learned to cook from my mother who was an exponent of Australian farm cooking and various of her friends who were also old-fashioned country cooks; then I branched out by observing and copying.
