>>7335757 >i dont cook There's your problem. >get better By cooking. >what basic knowledge should i have If you can sear or grill a piece of meat, then you're well on your way to eating just about anything. Serve it with some steamed rice and sauteed vegetables.
>>7335757 honestly there's really just 2 things to do, cook food and be willing to try out things and combinations. you should never say no to different things/combinations unless you've done it, tasted it and hated it.
>>7335757 Go on the internet. Google "how make steak med-rare" Look up a recipe Obey instructions Look up a video of someone doing it Watch it Cook Taste Rate
Rinse and repeat with different foods.
I also suggest getting to know someone who knows how to cook. They can be a little autistic about their preferences (for example how to fucking cut zucchinis right and with what kind of knife or what brand of tongs/pans are the best) but mostly you'll get good tips.
Oh, and also learn to clean up afterwards. Cleaning your shit is 30% of the work.
I learned by watching food television. I guess it's kinda harder for the next generation because most current food tv is complete garbage consisting of people cooking with garbage... Luckily there are still a few shows around that just show basic cooking skills and easy recipes. Follow a few of those, watch more and read about dishes you want to try and just give it a go.
>>7335757 Don't think about it as "what basic knowledge should I have?" Just start cooking. I mean, it's best if you don't do anything TOO complicated to start with, but what the fuck would you even make that's that complicated? Just start following recipes, pay attention to what you're doing. Did it turn out well? Start learning from there. Really, the basic "skill" of cooking just comes from doing it, over and over, and adjusting for your fuckups.
Watch some cooking shows to see if there are bits of advice here and there you hadn't considered. Otherwise, there's not much you can learn without just fucking doing it.
Oh, eggs are a perfect way to pick up the "basics." They're cheap, quick, and it's easy to see exactly how any change in technique, temperature, equipment, etc. affects the end result. Also eggs are hard to do consistently well, every single time. Even the pros fuck 'em up sometimes. Plus if you fuck up, the results are usually edible enough, and safe.
