Two Types of Cooking


There are actually two types of cooking, and I figure they should have their own names.

The first is something I can do reasonably competently – put a bunch of ingredients in a slow cooker, and turn it on. Or put some meat and veggies in the oven and roast them. This should be called “I slow cooked” or “I roasted”, not “I cooked”.

The second is where you are actually attending and interacting – turning, stirring, flipping. How you act and react will have a major effect on the results. That’s actual cooking.
