Cheese-making or barbecue?
For my 20% project this semester, I have decided to focus on something cooking related. Right now, my skills are limited to cereal, scrambled eggs, and boxed pastas but it is something I want to be better at, I just haven't quite found that time to explore. I have narrowed my focus down to two types of cooking that interest me: 1) making cheese. I have always wanted to try making my own cheese, I just always thought it was easier to buy it or 2) master the art of barbecuing. This skill, usually reserved for the men in my family, always looked fun and is one of my favorite foods.
