  • Your age has little to do with it really, you can always improve on what you already know. You may never be a natural, or get that fifth Michellin star, but if you have a genuine interest then in a years time you should at least be much better than you were when you began, and have a few extra tricks up your sleeve.
  • It's never too late to cook! You can start with basics (well, they are basics for me because they are what I started with) -- stir frying, making oatmeal, frying eggs, that sort of thing -- do you know how to do those?
  • It's never too late to learn to cook. I'd recommend delicious but simple food such as many Italian dishes, but maybe that’s cos Italian is my favourite. The only other advice apart from keeping it simple is to cook what you like. If you don’t know how something is supposed to taste how can you cook it……. & keep tasting the food as you’re preparing it!
  • It's never too late ... Get yourself a cookbook (or watch online or TV cooking shows) ... start with basic things. Cooking isn't really hard, it's just following directions. Bon Apetit!
  • It's never too late. Start with something simple and work up to harder stuff. It's not hard at all as long as you follow the recipe.
  • I dunno. How old are you? 125 or more?
  • Not sure of your age (nor am I asking), but never too late to learn to cook. Try these two websites below. They are for too very good chefs from Food Network. Simple delicious recipes, easy instructions. Before ya know it, you'll be inviting people over for a meal you've prepared!! Rachael Ray www.rachaelray.com Good Eats with Alton Brown http://www.foodnetwork.com/good-eats/index.html (Alton Brown explains not only how to make a recipe, but the why's of cooking (like why you need to rinse the potatoes after cooking, what it can do for the recipe, so forth). He's good, and funny).
  • No.Anyone can start at whatever age they want to but you should have the will to learn anything.The next thing is humility in front of the person who is going to teach you. But I think it is good for you to know how to heat and eat.You will be more happier. I have been cooking for the last 30 years and I am tired now.I wish someone would feed me!It is a thankless job to cook for everyone!LOL!
  • It's never too late to learn how to cook or to cook better. Best thing is to find a good food mentor, a friend to show you all those little things that can make dishes better or best. Following Julia Child's old Mastering the Art of French Cooking is fun, just get the books and dive in. You w8ll learn many things.
  • You are never too late to learn to cook, unless you are too weak to be able to pick up hot pots or handle utensils.
  • There are two basic concepts in cooking: heat it up, and don't let it burn. That's all it is.
  • Nonsense! You can always teach an old dog new recipes ;)
  • Regardless of your age, you can learn how to cook!! A friend of mine is almost 60 and has been feeling badly about not knowing how to cook, so I started teaching her. In a very short amount of time she is making some great dinners and soups and she is SO proud of herself!! Just follow a recipe and you will have success time and time again. If you are looking for something in particular, do what I did today. Google the words simple+apple pie recipe (substitute apple pie for what you want to make) and you will usually get a tasty and easy to make recipe. I made an apple crumb pie for the first time today and am very happy with it! Also, you will find demonstrations of various recipes on youtube.
  • It's never too late to learn how to cook. Go for it!
  • My last wife used to literally sigh & moan loudly when in the kitchen (converse to other rooms!), so besides grilling/barbeque and breakfast (gleaned early on), I essentially began learning at age 46. Think of it as a static art form that you can eat when completed! [I hope this at least provides a little encouragement.] Bon Appetite! ;-)
  • Age is irrelevant. The only requirement is thirst for knowledge and skills. Stop agonizing and try some recipes. (From my limited experience, making candy can be rather challenging. Wouldn't begin with that.)
