I can cook a few dishes quite well at the moment, nothing fancy. I am good at making creamy dishes; pasta with creamy sauce and prawns, steak with a creamy cider sauce, etc. and I make an alright thai green curry. But I am very competitive and I hate not being the best cook I know. I am quite good at following recipes but get a bit stuck for ideas when it comes to trying to come up with recipes myself.
please provide me with some tips to becoming a better cook.
