I was preparing Sunday lunch, and thinking how content I was feeling. There is just something almost therapeutic about 'podding' beans!....and hulling some strawberries from Mum's garden for dessert... And this got me thinking....which cooking tasks do we find therapeutic? In addition to the two above, I'd have to add bread-making. And why? Is it because I associate some tasks with childhood? ...I always loved to watch Mum make bread, and have always felt it a very 'satisfying' job.....and as children we often helped pprepare veg (- and I don't believe that the fact that children today 'don't like' veg is totally unrelated to the fact that so few of them know the joy of planting, growing and preparing veggies!)....but other childhood tasks don't leave me with the same sense of well-being! So, what cooking do you find works as therapy....and why?
