A short on Cooking

Cooking is the work of preparing food for eating. The word cooking encompasses all methods of food preparation with non-heated methods. It includes a huge range of methods, tools and combinations of ingredients to change the taste or digestibility of food. It is the method of select, measuring and mixing of ingredients in a planned procedure in a try to get the desired result. Factors affecting the final result include the inconsistency of ingredients, ambient conditions, tools, and the skill of the person doing the genuine cooking.

The variety of cooking universal is a reflection of the several nutritional, aesthetic, agricultural, cultural and religious considerations that crash upon it.

Cooking normally requires applying heat to a food, which regularly, though not always, chemically transforms it, therefore varying its flavor, texture, appearance, and nutritional properties. There is archaeological evidence of roasted foodstuffs, equally animal and vegetable, in human campsites dating from the initial known use of fire, some 800,000 years ago.
