As part of our Stay Extraordinary series, we want to know how you came to cook so extraordinarily well!

We all have the ability to become an extraordinary cook. If we all dig deep enough, there is at least one meal we've mastered and some we've flubbed. Practice makes perfect, and over time you've gained restaurant-worthy techniques. Not so sure your cuisine is award-winning? Here are a few helpful tips:

Try it out. It usually takes a few tries to perfect a dish. Try, try again . . . until you get it just the way you like it.
Seek out new ingredients. Spice up your cuisine by diversifying your culinary repertoire. Seek fresh ingredients at your local open-air markets and pick up some new, interesting additions in the ethnic food section of your grocery store.
