Re-blogged: From a Chef’s Closet – Food for thought

Read the original post here: Skillkindle Blog tumblr_inline_mt27g6D75i1qz4rgp

I’ve been cooking since I was 13 years old. It started with the small, basic tasks. Washing, peeling, chopping and sometimes it was just organizing the pantry shelves or making space in the refrigerator or putting the casserole to bake. Little did I know that by helping my mum in the kitchen, I was really just helping myself.

The kitchen for me held a world of free expression in the form of fruits, vegetables, pulses, grains, spices and a thousand splendid aromas that would rise from my latest concoctions (recipes). All this followed by the final prize that came in the form of a verbal or non-verbal expression of resplendent satisfaction on the faces of my guests.

I’ve taught many a newbies who came to me with a latent fear of cooking or baking, thinking them to be herculean tasks. But our sessions always end with them thanking me for a session that enlightened them in more ways than one. My reward? you guessed it, the smile and satisfaction on their faces!

Spices, flavours, colours are all subconscious motivators that work wonders to get our mind off the chronic problems we face in our hectic and routine lives.

Although cooking may seem like a common day-to-day activity, it can be therapeutic for a diverse group of people. Cooking therapy is quickly becoming a popular part of treatment for Eating Disorders, Learning Disabilities and ADHD, Autism, Depression and Anxiety.

Among other’s, benefits of Cooking Therapy include: stress relief, improved social skills, balance and coordination, sensory awareness, improved physical health, enhanced ability to plan and organize, time management skills, relief from boredom, improved memory, attention and focus, self-esteem building and a guaranteed sense of accomplishment

But you don’t just have to take my word for it, try it for yourself and let me know!

Till then…Cook and Bake someone happy!
