I love food and can't deny
There's no dish that I won't try
I love to cook from recipes
Familiar dishes prepped with ease
Shopping at the grocery store
To me it's never been a chore
We're lucky that so many things
Help us eat like we are kings
I encourage everyone to cook
From internet to favourite book
Tease your tastebuds don't think twice!
Chili peppers add some spice
Garlic, ginger, diced up shallot
Brings a party to your palate
Splash some wine, add some cream
Poach it, fry it, braise or steam
Roast a veggie and you'll savour
So much richer deeper flavour
All you need is pan or pot
Even if one's all you've got
To make food that is much more pleasin'
Never be afraid to season
Something learned in cooking school
A culinary golden rule!
In 30 minutes you will see
Just how simple it can be
To serve up pasta or a soup
(Even if at first it's goop...)
It doesn't take a lot of skill
Only wherewithal and will
So please consider what I say
Try to cook a bit each day
The more you do the better you get
And easier too with far less fret
And there is no more satisfaction
Than eating well that costs a fraction!
The best part is when sharing food
The memories made taste just as good
Yet after meals that grant all wishes
Rule that must be followed, which is
One who cooks does not do dishes!
