Cooking is the area where patients with psychological or neurological disorders feel most comfortable and express themselves.

The person feels valued. Being admired for the food you cook makes you feel valuable. In particular, the appreciation or criticism of a meal or dessert made in a collective group causes the person to connect with his/her environment, integrate himself with that meal or dessert, and gain a purpose for new experiments.

Especially the meal or dessert (semolina halva) made within the group both reveals their own feelings and enables them to adapt to the group and create a bond with the environment.
