Recently I've been taken an interest in cooking different types of food. I had a Japanese professor for my university (who I've made friends with) show me how to cook Japanese curry. His wife has also shown me how to prepare temaki sushi and I hope to learn tamagoyaki sometime soon. I know how to make takoyaki, but I just don't have the kitchen things to do so.

So does anybody else out there attempt to learn how to cook different types of food? If so, from what types? When did you start wanting to learn? How did your first try go?

P.S. I hope that this isn't a duplicate thread. I tried searching, but I didn't find anything so I'm assuming it's not a duplicate. But if it is, I apologize and will understand if it is frozen.

It's good that you're interested =) Always nice to try new things.

I took a foods class few grades back where we made all sorts of things. I'm not sure it was real fancy, but you know..side dishes from different countries. I don't cook much nowadays, though. I don't think my mom trusts me in the kitchen >.<

I made these really dry muffins once, soo..

I'm Italian, Polish, & Romanian, so I eat/cook a lot of foods from those countries. Mmm~

My brother's a fantastic cook & has a more Asian approach to his cooking.

I'd love to be able to cook Indian dishes.

Hah, I had a cooking class back in highschool too. It was called "FACTS" or something. Now-a-days I try to cook lots of different things. The last thing I tried to bake was chocolate chip banana bread which was loved by all. Before that I attempted to make vegan cupcakes. No one liked them but a few people. My boyfriend didn't like the "fake" sugar, but after not eating sweets for a long time... American sweets are almost too sweet haha.

It also helps to have someone who has cooked the food I'm interested in cooking and can show me how to do it well enough ha!

I'm fairly certainly those are required classes. I'd be surprised if someone didn't take a cooking/sewing/general etiquette class.

It was an elective. I could've taken stuff in computers instead, but maybe that's just my school.

Anyway I'm off this thread XD Don't mean to be rude. I say why below.

Lol "FACTS" X3 That's so cool. And chocolate chip banana bread sounds too good (this is the last time I'm posting here for a while. T-T I feel like I might ruin my diet.) Now I've never heard of vegan cupcakes but I would've tried them. Sometimes, I guess it's just an aquired taste, you know? And I bet you that if most Americans weren't used to that sweet stuff, they would have liked them more (no offense to any of your friends who might've disliked them.)

I'm afraid I can't be that much help. I just posted to share past experiences, but if you're still at all interested in Japanese dishes and learning how to cook new ones, you should go on YT and check out "Cooking with Dog"--They don't really cook with dogs, but it's "hosted" by one and they cook all sorts of Japanese dishes (www.youtube.com/user/cookingwithdog)

I hope I might have helped at least a little bit.

honesty i can and can't cook at the same time. i can cook really well when it's for me and maybe one other but if I got to cook for the whole fam I just make average food. and I can cook anything if there's a recipe.

Good job making a thread! There is a "Do you enjoy cooking" thread ( http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-5179/Do-you-enjoy-cooking.html ) but it is totally lame and mostly yes or no answers, so this one might just take off (the other one got 75 pages but they weren't very good)

When I get off work I'll try posting a few japanese recipes I have written down at home for ya!

I try not to cook with a closed ethnic spectrum because food constantly shifts. I've been trying to break into "indian food" but finding the ingredients is proving difficult. I live in a greek / hispanic / muslim neighborhood so the local grocers carry fun stuff to play around with.

I'm planning a trip deep into Queens to get some good ingredients for indian food. I'm part of spark pages so I dug up some indian recipes there (but I doubt their authenticity) but I mostly want to know the ingredients so I can play with them and make them healthier and easier to make.

My advice to you is not to expect huge things on your first try. That is part of why I don't care if the recipies I'm starting with are legit or not. Unless you grow up eating a lot of an "ethnic food" you probably aren't going to know the ingredients and preparation just from eating it. After you've tried cooking it, try to eat the "real thing" again and see if you can't improve your version.

Thanks, I would love those recipes. Yeah, I don't want to limit myself to Japanese dishes, but right now I know so many Japanese people and they're taking enthusiasm into teaching me how to cook that right now that's alI have time to learn haha.
