Welcome to Whole Food Studio for beginners in the kitchen
Are you a beginner in the kitchen who wants to learn how to cook from scratch?
That was my story not that long ago.
Cooking is confusing, especially in the beginning when there is so much to learn.
Perhaps you’ve found a recipe for fresh ears of corn.
And peeling back the leaves, you find . . . all this stringy silk.
Or, you are half way through cooking and discover, you now need a cheese grater. Except, you don’t have one.
And then some recipes say, ‘mix well.’
But, how can you tell when everything is unrecognizable, dusted in cocoa powder?
And then instructions mention a medium frypan, medium mixing bowl, medium sized onions . . . so, what does medium look like?
Now, what if you had what I wished for . . .
recipes in 3 bite-sized easy steps that made cooking for beginners stress-free?
Each recipe that began with a list of ingredients.
From the very start, you see which ones to chop or cut, grate or slice, brought to room temperature, left in the fridge or marinated for another 8 hours
~ this way there are no mid-recipe surprises!
Next is the ever- important list of equipment.
When you know you’ve got the equipment covered from the beginning, you’ll relax and hopefully, enjoy the experience.
And then there is the method.
You’ve got the ingredients and equipment sorted, now simply follow the steps.
Along the way, we add helpful tips, reminders and printable sheets.
With Easy Read information and follow-along photos, you too can cook great tasting food from scratch.
A little about me:
I’m Heather and I now live in Canada. I have New Zealand roots, am a mom and former orthotist who also trained as a prosthetist.
Today I’m proud to also say, I’m a picture book author!
In my spare time, I’ve always loved to cook simple recipes that tasted fantastic, but those moments of cooking confusion above; they were mine.
So when I learned a little photography and combined the two, Whole Food Studio was created.
This is my opportunity to pass along what I’ve learned from family, friends, and hours of trial and error in the kitchen.
All photos, unless mentioned, are my own.
Thanks for visiting!
