After working all your life, being retired is a funny feeling at first. Suddenly you have lots of time for all those things you used to put off. I started off by investing this new-found time in our home. That's how I came across Home Connect. Home Connect and its partner network are not only very practical, it also helps me with my new hobby – cooking.
"You are never too old to learn something new. You just need the right mentor"
Unlike me, my wife Linda is still working as a teacher. That's why I try to help out with the chores where I can. So if she comes home from school at lunchtime, I try to have a delicious meal waiting for her. I get my ideas from the Home Connect app. It has seasonal dishes, recipe ideas for every occasion and much more. The method is explained step by step and I use the app to send the correct settings directly to my Home Connect oven or cooktop.
"I have a virtual chef instructing me"
Since I have more time on my hands, I have started doing a cooking course. The best thing is I don't even need to leave my home to do it. My virtual cooking instructor is called Innit and it allows me to gradually improve my culinary skills. Innit is also linked to Home Connect, which helps me cook complicated dishes successfully.
