Why Cooking Makes Us Happy

“A study in the International Journal of Humanities and Social Science looked at the therapeutic qualities of cooking as a hobby, including its reported ability to cause a dimmed sense of time and an altered sense of consciousness. The researchers found that the act of cooking improves a person’s wellbeing and is associated with life satisfaction.” read the whole article in Why Cooking Makes You Happy.

Instagram and Pinterest

Follow Dishmeetup on Instagram, tag your creations with #dishmeetup, or mention @dishmeetup. 

As a community, we believe in inspiring and supporting each other. Often times when we see a member create a dish we feel more compelled and less intimidated to make the same dish vs seeing a professional chef making it. Plus you can ask questions, share your modifications and experience making the dish.

And for folks on Pinterest, all the recipes we create and like are on the Dishmeetup Pinterest board.
