Good food for a good mood

When I was a young child my father made a lot of good food. He made the tastiest apple pie. When I was 10 years old, I wasn't about all that cooking stuff. Until I had to help with the apple pie. I really liked it. I liked it so much that I helped my father a lot with baking apple pies after that. Now I'm older my taste and knowledge of food have grown.

In our street lives an Italian family. During summertime they make dinner for the whole street. Since then my love for Italian food has grown a lot. I could remember this one time when they had a whole sheep on the roasting-jack. I enjoyed it very much. The family came from Sardinia. When my mother was young she went there with a couple of Italian friends. She told me how they slaughtered a sheep. And how they prepared it for dinner. I thought this was quite impressive and so I never forgot.

Food can make my mood so I'm in love with a good dish. I like to go out with friends to eat. A sushi restaurant is my favorite. I don't cook often. Once I did try to make sushi myself. Which was fun! But not a lot of success. I think good food is very important but I find it hard to make good food so I have gained a lot more respect for chefs. In the next months I will follow an internship with Culinice, so I hope to learn a lot about cooking en blogging.
