IELTS Speaking topic: A person who is good at cooking

Describe a person you know who is good at cooking.
You should say:
who this person is
what is your relationship with this person
what kinds of food he or she cooks
and explain why you think this person is so good at cooking.

I’ll talk about one of my friends whom I think is the great cook I know. Actually he is not a gifted cook but he has a good reputation of making delicious and tasty menu out of very ordinary ingredients.

We got to know each other many years ago. At first, his wife and mine were colleagues and good friends; therefore afterwards, we got good friends too. They always invite us to their family and have dinner together during the weekends.

I guess he is good at cooking some traditional Chinese food, such as rice, fishes, meat and some tofu products. He likes using fresh and seasonal ingredients, prepared with a minimum of fuss and beautifully balanced. Both the colour, aroma and taste of these dishes are very fantastic.

And I believe that what makes him so good at cooking is love. I mean, at first, he just wanted to cook some nutritious food for his little daughter. He even went to the chef school every day to get training for half a year, to learn various kinds of Chinese food. Therefore, he then became proficient in cooking. I think besides a good cook, he is also a responsible father.
