I think it is important for any food blogger or home chef to have a Culinary Bucket list. A Culinary Bucket list is simply a list of things you’d really like to try. Whether it is a particular recipe, a technique or a cooking style, it is beneficial to set goals in the kitchen and keep growing in your Culinary Adventures.
I did this last year and the year before. Neither year, did I make everything on my Culinary Bucket list, in fact, I didn’t even make half. LOL And further in fact, I spent a great deal of each year adding things rather than crossing them off. I tend to lean on variations of things I already make, rather than pushing forward and crossing things off. But hopefully this year that will all change that. I’m giving my Culinary Bucket List a 2nd try and seeing if I can’t actually get some of these things made and tried.
I am always open to new ideas and new recipes to try, so never worry about making suggestions, I’d love to hear them.
Oh, and I pulled a few in from last year’s bucket list (some I’ve made but haven’t posted and some I never even tried) – I will get them made this year! I also added a few I’d like to make again… only different.
Oh, and I will be adding to this throughout the year. Expect it.
