I love to cook.Â Coming from a family of die-hard foodies, Iâve never had any problem finding people to cook for, but lately the issue has become: âwhat to cook?âÂ You can only go through so many terakihi and chips (Monday), spaghetti bolognaise (Tuesday), and butter chickens (Wednesday) before the 5pm groans begin to make themselves more audible. Letâs face it, as society has moved towards âconvenience cultureâ, our creativity in the kitchen has suffered.Â As our lives become busier, weâre spending more time at the desk, less time with the family and even less time thinking about whatâs for dinner (good in some ways, not so good in others).Â What used to be a time for the family to gather and socialise at the end of the day has, for many, become a staid and uninspiring woof-down before we settle into an evening of television (or more work!).
