Welcome to my cooking guide, everyone can follow a recipe, but that is not what will turn you into a great cook. You need to evolve and learn from your mistakes to become a great cook. Explore, experience, try, test, taste, smell, feel, and look! Before you can make mistakes, you need to understand the fundamentals before creating your own dishes. It is time to forget everything you know and start from the beginning with this Cooking guide for home cooks. This page will get updated from time to time because we will never stop learning about cooking. I will teach you what I have experienced while working in a professional kitchen and how you can apply it to your home cooking.
Note: Each time you scroll down, you will have access to the ”Cooking Guide Menu” on your right.

I will teach you about the basics and the techniques that are used in the kitchen. You need to understand where you need to go and what you need to do before creating your own dish. I’m not a Michelin star chef. I worked at a sushi restaurant and in an Asian/Japanese Fusion cuisine. But there is one thing every chef has in common: they know the basics. This is your new modern cooking guide. There won’t be any cooking books or PDF guides. I will upload everything on this website and upload videos about it on my Youtube channel. So let’s start with the cooking guide for home cooks.
