Cooking is a pleasure for me, something that takes away some of the stress – which seems to never go away – and also give me the satisfaction of enjoying its results. While I have my go-to dishes – pasta, pasta, and did I mention pasta? – I do like to try new things regularly. That adds a little flavor of adventure to things.
I love recipe books, not only because they help me out in that adventure thing, but also because they are a joy to browse through when you’re just sitting down and idling. I still have several physical paper cookbooks, which are rather specialized, such as one focusing on healthy recipes Philippines style. I also have some for Indonesian and Indian food.
