Feta in olive oil and spices – at home

Since I’ve decided to eat much less meat I kind of developed a very strong liking towards cheeses. We go to the local grocery every Thursday and buy loads of different types of it.

Well, I lived in London for one and a half year, and my English was almost perfect then,  but it was ten twelve years ago and I forgot a lot. I still read a lot in English, books, websites, magazines, newspapers, etc., but when I have to express myself it’s getting harder.

I downloaded a sample of the book to my e-book reader and it seems like it can help me to learn the essentials of cooking, really, the basics. Ingredients, tools, different types of jars, pots, different methods, so that if I write that sauteing that would mean sauteing, and if I read somewhere that I need to use a pot, I”ll be able to choose the perfect one from my cupboard.

As I have a bit of experience, I think I’ll be rather quick with this first book, and then I can easily find another one, with a bit wider range. With the basic vocabulary from this book hopefully it will much easier to write this blog…
