    For this form I have to write a little brief paragraph about me, and it regards my cooking skills (dont ask why ).

    I want half of the sentence to basically say:

    because I really like my own cooking skills .

    But within this sentence I want to alter it to add the word "enthusiastic" or "enthusiasm" (with regards to enjoying cooking). Any suggestions as to how I can change this sentence?

    I don't really think you can, unless you change the meaning slightly. "I approach cooking with great enthusiasm"

    My enthusiasm for cooking enables me to put dedication and effort into creating dishes, which has resulted in me reaching a high standard.

    If you aren't really at a high standard, then use another adjective of your cooking which shows how good you are.

    One great passion of mine is cooking. Due to my enthusiasm in this area, I would relish the chance to prepare meals for my peers.

    Hope this helps

    the whole point about those sort of forms is you're always going to come off
    as a pretentious w*nker, so why not go completely overboard and just say:

    i like to cook. i'm good at cooking. Peter and Jane like cooking too. I cook for Peter and Jane. Timmy the dog has a very large bone. I cook a lot. I cook with my big cooking pot. I am better at cooking than you, probably, so gimme a job you c*nt.

    top tip: the nuance of expression will make stuff-all difference.

    What do you think?
