With regards to cooking, I am a self-taught, amatuer gormet cook. I started cooking in my early 20's, when I moved to Germany, and found that if I wanted any kind of Asian or Hispanic cusine, I had to make it myself. My love of cooking grew from there, and even when I can eat out, I find eating something at home from good ingredients to be much more satisfying. Cooking is always fun, and I love a challenge, but by far I would say baking is always the most fun.
