No it's not. It's not like you can just suddenly become better than professional chefs just by learning to cook a bit at home. Unless you are really experienced a good restaurant will always be better.
That's not to say I don't recommend learning to cook. Quite the opposite. It's an extremely nice skill to have, and it can be really fun as well. But for chefs it's their work and of course they will be better than an average joe.
i never said that i was suddenly good. i cook for almost 15 years already and i started with sushi like 5 years ago. it surely took me some time to learn it bcs its not easy but you can learn it if you want...and i can guarantee you that i would be able to make better sushi than above average restaurants(i surely cant compare myself with top tier sushi but you will pay A LOT for sushi like that)
i only said:
"home made sushi/burger/whatever is the best"
nothing more and he replied to me with "Hell no" and "Either way home-made sushi/burgers would be way worse that’s a fact"
which just isnt true. depends only on your cooking skills...
"It isn't true either that homemade food is the best"
i was exaggerating a bit ofc:)
but i always prefer to cook than restaurants. mostly bcs i dont trust their suppliers at all, especially meat suppliers. i rather go to smaller butcher where i can chose exactly what i want and i can actually see it without all those marinades and stuff...
and i work as warehouse manager in warehouse with vegetable and fruit so i have other ingredients for free so i can save some money as well...and food in really good restaurants is pretty expensive.
but like you said you have to start somewhere and it depends only on you if you want to try it or not. my first foods were trash haha but i actually enjoyed it a lot so i gave it time
I also prefer cooking myself unless I really want to be lazy or have something special. As a student it was easily the cheapest way to get good food, and I learned to like it as well. I am all for cooking at home, but I also appreciate a good restaurant.
true if you're only making the sushi
you gotta make that miso soup and the shish kebab Japanese style. you gotta get those sauces, not only soya sauce
takes way too much time to make a real ass sushi lunch/dinner
You can get pretty decent sushi with not that much effort, and you get a lot. Make it with friends or family and you all get to eat well, and it's fun with good company. Of course it's better from a good restaurant but homemade is really good as well.
