For most of us, a meal is possibly the best break we can wish for in our daily routines. And especially when we can enjoy it in the company of others.
The hectic lives of most of us may lure us more than is good for us to a fast meal. And often we have no -nutritional- information on this, which may not always be healthy. We have often no idea of the (amount of) additives in the food or the fat used for deep-fried foods. And for Western and Indian cuisine, we may only guess the cream content. Cream, which -chefs generally say- makes every dish taste good!
If you are going to eat with friends, consider inviting them to your home for a self-cooked meal. Or maybe even one of your friends would like to make a dish together!
I find ultimate relaxation in the kitchen making nice dishes. This includes making basic sauces, yoghurt, bread and beer.
But apart from recipes, this website features separate chapters on background knowledge as well as on cooking and preparation techniques. One chapter discusses eating and drinking healthy. This can raise awareness and debunk some of the myths that exist around these topics. A variety of other topics are offered as well.
My sincere objective is to get you lured to the kitchen more often. Make more of those nice tasting dishes of which you know what it contains. Enjoy the food alone, with your partner, family or friends! On top of that, cooking can be very relaxing!
Finally, this website is not a diet instruction or a path to lose weight. But the combination of healthy but good food taken in by moderation, enjoyed with others and in combination with regular and good exercise, is the best way to keep healthy and fit!
