Greek food is my freaking fave. Well Albanian actually but huge overlap. The cuisine(s) just use a couple of simple high quality ingredients when combined = deliciousness. In the US there are too many options, too many countries’ cuisines, too many sauces, fusions etc. so I can see why people get intimidated to start cooking. You go to the grocery store here and there’s just too much. Whereas for me a salad has always been: tomato, cucumber, green onion, lettuce, feta, olive oil and lemon.
My thoughts: if you want to start home cooking start with ingredients rather than recipes. People often will start with recipes, find something that looks delicious, but then end up buying 20 ingredients most of which will go to waste, spend 2 hours to cook and 3 to cleanup (@kaydenhines I’m thinking of you) But if you start with ingredients and just go buy 10 things (eg 4-5 veggies, 3 fruits, a grain, a protein) you’ll find ways to work with what you have. Maybe at first they’ll be a little boring and plain but over time you’ll get creative! I used to just make chicken and greek salad and bread on repeat initially after college and then slowly introduced new things. I’d buy a veggie w no clue what to do with it (eg zuchhini) and if I had a pasta craving I’d google zucchini pasta and adapt it w ingredients I had. It wasn’t overnight but over time I learned more things and developed an intuition rather than copying recipes robotically.
