It changed a little bit during my stay in Canada. I have been there alone so I needed to cook for myself otherwise I would die or bankrupt and I started working in the food industry. The first I was just a dishwasher in an Italian restaurant but I made also the deserts later and after I worked in a coffee shop but in the kitchen. So I actually served food for others. A big step haha.
After a while, I learned basic stuff, like cutting vegetables and fried eggs. Still, I made just sandwiches and salads but I guess the important thing was to gain more confidence.
Connect to my experience I started cooking more for myself and these days I don't mind to cook for others as well. Still, I try to keep it simple but I think I am above average cook hehe. Even though I think if you mix good ingredient together it can never be a bad meal. :)
Stay with me. Efran.
