Cooking from prior generations to mine

A thought hit me whilst reading. It’s about cooking and what I’ve learned. It turns out my grandmother in fact both grandmothers could cook but no real recipes. Me sometimes I use recipes, but I learned more about technique

For example my two favorite dishes to make well three if we’re counting. There’s the pork chops with sour cream and dills sauce, Then of course chicken with mushroom and leek fricasee, and finally Bolognese sauce for pasta.

But over time I mastered the egg. My cooking technique is time and temperature. I’m also very good with making say broccoli taste fantastic without cheese all over it. Or making an omelet without any browning of the egg.

So like my grandmothers I can make things without a recipe. I just know what tastes good. Plus seasoning is clutch.
