I don't remember being taught how to cook - I soaked it up from my environment.
Growing up in Greece in the 70s, cooking - and eating - at home was simply normal.
On weekdays, meals were very simple, whatever my working mum could rustle up in between shifts. But on weekends there would be shopping at the farmers' market, drooling over recipes, grinding of spices, and animated conversation at the dinner table.
This is where I honed my cooking intuition.
