  • I have learnt many skills from people around me in my life.
  • Here I would like to talk about my mother who taught me a very useful skill of cooking.
  • My mother is in her forties and she is very tall and beautiful.
  • She has a gifted hand in cooking.
  • She has her unique way of teaching us, I mean me and my sister, how to cook.
  • She never made us feel as if she was teaching us.
  • She just kept us involved in the kitchen while she cooked.
  • We learnt a lot just by observing her.
  • I learnt cooking because I too want to be able to cook like her.
  • I also learnt cooking because it is a very useful skill in today’s time.
  • Moreover, as I plan to go abroad for my higher education, this skill will be very useful.
  • I will not face any food problems.
  • I am a vegetarian and I have heard that veg. food outlets are very few in foreign countries.
  • This skill has proved very useful because many times I have been able to attend to guests when my mother was not at home.
  • My mother not only taught me simple routine cooking but also some Chinese dishes.
  • She also taught me how to make pizzas in the electric tandoor.
  • She also bakes excellent cakes.
  • Whenever anybody in our neighbourhood celebrates a birthday, the cake is always baked by my mother.
  • She loves experimenting in the kitchen and she has many of her own recipes which are quick and easy and at the same time very delicious.
  • She also presents her dishes very well.
  • She says that the look of the dish is as important as its taste.
  • I am fortunate, I have a talented mother who has taught me this useful skill.
