Learning to be home cook

Have your say

I’m making sure the grass does not grow under my feet.

To keep my mind working in my old age, apart from hobbies of magic tricks, ventriloquism and juggling, I am cooking.

I have made a steak pie, chocolate chip cookies, bread and butter pudding. I will also be trying to make a quiche and sponge cake, but my cooking will just be on Sundays. Of course there are other things I will be making.

For my pies I’ve been buying pre-packed pastry, but when I get the hang of cooking I will make my own pastry.
