My Love of Cooking
Everyone needs food, and I love cooking it.
Good Morning/Afternoon to all of you teachers, students, and judges. If you haven’t guessed it, my speech is on my love of cooking.
The first thing that I’m going to talk about is why I love cooking. Cooking is fun because you get to experiment with your ingredients. I also like it because I get to cook with my Mom and I’ve been cooking with her since I was very young. The best part about cooking is to eat the meal that I cooked and share it with my family. I also love it because you know what you’re putting in your food and you can choose your ingredients. That’s why I love cooking, but you would be surprised how many school subjects are linked to it.
Cooking is fun also because it related to all school subjects and helps you learn more. Language is related because you read the recipes and jot down notes. It relates to Social Studies because you learn about different countries dishes. Science and Math are used in all baking. You need to measure exact ingredients and also combine the correct ingredients for your recipe to work. Health is related because you know what you’re putting in your food and you can use the healthiest products like gluten free flour. That is why cooking is good for learning, but it can also give you opportunities.
Cooking gave me the following opportunities like the following examples. The first thing that happened is that I got in the newspaper five times. Another cool thing that happened is that I got on live T.V. twice. Because of winning an online cooking contest, I got to meet the famous Chef Jamie Oliver. Those are the examples of the opportunities cooking gave me.
That concludes my speech on my love of cooking. Next time you are going to eat out, think twice, because eating at home is more healthy and fun.
