Share This Article:
It’s a common presumption that many students can’t complete the simplest of culinary tasks when heading to university, including boiling an egg or making a simple stir fry. Many students may attribute this to laziness or not having enough money to cook. Not all students are like this, of course, but if you are about to start your journey into further education (and independence), feeling embarrassed by your lack of skills in the kitchen is not ideal, and so we’ve got a few ways to help fix it.

Try it out with your favourite recipes to start with, although be careful not to do them so many times that you end up disliking what you’ve created!
