Howcookingworks started as a blog in 2009 and became a social network for people to learn how to cook.  In 2012, the social network shut down and I spent some time thinking what went wrong.

In the process of doing a social network, I thought I could find some silver bullet for people to learn how to cook.  But what I realized, is none exists.  Learning to cook is a long and arduous process.  We learn from our friends, watching our parents cook, youtube, and random blogs out there.

My goal now is no longer to assert how you really should learn how to cook.  Instead this blog is an exploration of my own personal journey of cooking.  With that, I hope I may be able to impart some wisdom in this journey to you.
