Welcome to The Amateur Home Chef!
I’m Oystein, 68 years young and retired Merchant Navy Chief Engineer. I have always been interested in cooking, and now I like to share some of my experiences with you.
I am starting my journey in the kitchen. Challenging myself, following recipes, trying new techniques, inventing new recipes and impressing our family, relatives and friends.
I am a self-taught cook but not good, but I have the passion for cooking. Everybody starts as an amateur home chef. As we gain more experience, more techniques, more ideas and some determination, we could all be real chefs in the heart of our family. Therefore, any person who cooks at home could be called a home chef.
Everything we need and want to learn about to be a good cook and be a boss in our own kitchen can be done with the help of the technology. But of course, we still apply what we learned from our mothers and grandmothers and with ourselves by trials and errors. 🙂
