As a child, I always followed my mum around and usually she would be in the kitchen, so I’d watch her cook every day. As I grew older, I began wanting to help. By taking part with the cooking process, I could observe and learn at the same time.

What’s even better is to have your parent or guardian observe you cooking whilst they tell you what to do. This is a good way to ensure you’re doing all the right things and helps increase memory retention since you are the one cooking.
