Just like anything in life, the more you practice something the better you will get! Chefs only become chefs by practice and with that said you can be your own home chef. Once you have cooked your favorite dishes at least three to five times you will start to improve it by adding or taking out ingredients. Your skills will increase just by cooking at least three times a week. After one month or less, you will have mastered your favorite dish just the way you like it and will feel comfortable sharing your newly discovered culinary creation with your friends and family.
