When you look at a recipe and cook, it is important to read the recipe to the end before you start cooking. If you don't understand a word in a recipe, look it up online and make sure you understand what the recipe says before you start cooking.

It is important for beginners to cook according to the recipe. However, if the materials and tools are insufficient, McCarron says there is no problem on the spot, such as not adding the materials forcibly and substituting the tools. If you don't have enough seasoning and ingredients, the taste may drop, but you can make something that can be eaten by preparing the basic ingredients of cooking, such as oil, salt, and a fire.

◆ Time to cook
If the recipe says 'cooking time is 30 minutes', McCarron recommends that beginners assume that it will take 2 to 3 times, or 60 to 90 minutes. It is common for beginners to be unfamiliar with cooking, so it's important to make music slowly without being impatient while playing music and getting help from family and friends.

◆ Meat

Mr. McCarron's recommended recipe is 'First, soak the chicken drumsticks mixed with oil and lemon juice for 1 hour, season with salt and pepper. In an oven preheated to 190 degrees, put the chicken skin down for 20-25 minutes. Bake it, turn it over, and bake it for another 10 minutes, then spread the sauce mixed with mustard, honey, salt and pepper on the chicken and bake for 5 minutes.'

◆ Egg
A dish is prepared by simply placing the eggs on top of the baked vegetables, adding them to the soup, or placing them on top of the rice. Although bake eggs playing the oil in the frying pan warm is how to make a basic fried egg, playing the oil enough to cover the bottom of a frying pan, to the outside of the egg to the crisp and fried baked

method also a recommended for beginners Said McCarron.
