We've previously had Workshop members swapping recipes on the site as well as barbecue techniques. There are clearly plenty of Workshop members who love to cook, particularly when they have access to their own home-grown produce.
But we understand not everyone loves to cook. For some it's more of a daily chore than a pleasure.
In our latest poll, we ask whether you like to cook. Please register your vote on the front page. You might also like to join in the discussion below by telling us some of your favourite dishes to cook.
I absolutely love to cook! I was never real creative or confident in the kitchen until a couple of years ago when I started to learn a lot from friends and family. A few years later and my recipe book collection has grown and so has the appliances in our kitchen. I love using my slow cooker in particular. It's just soo easy to prep and to have dinner cooking at home while i'm at work makes things so simple and easy. My partner prefers to barbecue up a lot of meats and vegies so between the two of us we have a lot of variety in our diet and dinner activities. We also enjoy making meals from scratch including homemade pasta and tomato sauce. Here's a quick pic of some fettuccine we made a few weeks ago.
It sure is @Isobel. Easy way to store and dry the pasta out. Have you made your own pasta before? We recently did our own gnocchi and it was amazing, so rewarding!
I used to make gnocchi regularly and have a pasta maker but never used it much @aly. You might inspire me to give it another go!
We really only use our pasta maker every couple of months but we tend to make a decent batch each time and freeze the pasta so it lasts longer. Of course it's not as good as the fresh stuff but still well worth it. I hope i've inspired you @Isobel!
