Tell Us About The Mistakes You Made When You First Learned How To Cook

We've all been there.

Cooking takes practice. And before you can become the next Gordon Ramsay, you're going to make a lot of mistakes.


And that's OK!

So what were some of the common cooking mistakes you made when you were first starting out in the kitchen?


Or even: the mistakes you *still* sometimes make, because nobody's perfect TBH.

Maybe you struggled with cooking meat perfect perfectly...


Or you'd never remember to let it rest before slicing into it afterwards.

Or you always burnt garlic to a crisp because you added it to the pan a bit too early.

Maybe your cakes always fell apart like a hilarious Pinterest fail because you didn't let them cool before slicing them.


Or perhaps your pasta clumped together because you let it sit in the colander for too long after draining it.
