I’m often asked, “Lauren, what made you decide to teach cooking?” And although it’s difficult for me to sum it up in one or even two reasons, the main thoughts that always pop into my mind first are these: First, I teach cooking because I really love to show how much fun the entire process can be, and how rewarding it can feel to take a bunch of small, seemingly insignificant parts and turn them into concoctions that make a truly positive difference to the quality of life at home. Secondly, aside from just simply sharing my love of the physical act of cooking and baking with others, it’s important that I help those who admire the culinary know-how of others understand that it isn’t necessary to have come from a great culinary legacy to become a great cook.
I didn’t learn what I know from my mother, or even my grandmother. I feel that this is very important for you to know, because I’m living proof of what can happen when one chooses to embrace newness in the kitchen as an adventure, and isn’t afraid to try. And for those of you who also didn’t come from a home that embraced thoughtful home cooking and shared meals with consistency, you need to understand that this shouldn’t stop you from creating this type of life for yourself, for your family and for your friends. Trust me, I truly understand how it feels to learn something new—since I’m always looking for something new to learn. To me, questions provide an arena for continual growth, because usually when I get answers, I find myself using those answers to dig deeper into new delicious territory. And then—low and behold—I find I have a slew of new questions! What fun!
So, I’m very respectful of that sense of newness, and understand perfectly how it can sometimes feel a little daunting. That’s why I want you to feel free to ask me anything—anything at all—whether it’s about cooking, family, life or a combination of them all. Whatever is on your mind. Remember that questions are healthy and good, and that as far as I’m concerned, there are no stupid questions. If there’s something you don’t know or are unsure of, and it’s keeping you from moving forward in your quest for a nurturing and delicious life, know that when you send your question (or concern) to me, you’re in “safe” hands. And, I promise that if I don’t have the answer, I’ll do my best to find it for you.
Simply fill out and submit the form above. I’ll be posting interesting questions (and my answers) on this page weekly, so check back often. And I invite you to browse through the past questions and answers posted in this section, too—you may just find your answer there! (Last names are never used in my answers and, if you’d like your first name kept confidential as well, just let me know this on the form when you post your question.)
