Anyone who knows me well enough knows that I do not belong in a kitchen. I’ve tried to cook, but to be honest I’ve had no real interest in it, that is, until recently. Just a week or two ago, I attempted an Indian dish,chicken vindaloo, and for the first time, it was not only a success, but I actually had a lot of fun in the process. It was like a sudden breakthrough.
After this epiphany, I’ve been thinking about cooking in an entirely different light. Maybe it didn’t always have to be boring. Could cooking be an adventure just like travel?
Asia is a continent that I have been intrigued by for as long as I can remember. In fact, even after watching Brokedown Palace when I was in 8th grade, I still wanted to visit Thailand, despite the cockroaches, drug smuggling, and depictions of prison in Thailand. It was the culture and visuals of the country that grabbed my attention the most.
