    constantly see and hear

    I tried to combine the following three ideas into a single sentence as written. Is it grammatically correct and natural to native speakers?

    1. My hobby is cooking.
    2. I was influenced by my grandmother.
    3. My grandmother is good at making delicious food.

    My hobby is cooking which is influenced by what I constantly see and hear my grandmother, who is good at making delicious food.

    HiAshiuhto
    Here are two possible sentences:

    I love cooking, and my Grandmother, has been a great influence on me. Inspiring me everyday, with all the delicious food she cooks.


    I love cooking and have learned, so much, from my Grandmother. Who inspires me, all the time, with the delicious dishes she cooks.

    Neither of those sentences is correct English.

    My choice of hobby, cooking, was influenced by my grandmother, who is good at making delicious food.


    I don't particularly like my version. I would prefer two sentences.
