"Your cooking was delicious!"

"Last night's reading was hard!"

Is cooking/reading a verb-turned-into-a-noun or what? And how would one reproduce this here?

The noun version of a verb is called a gerund. In English, it's usually +-ing or +-ation. Both examples you used are gerunds, but we haven't discussed how to make a gerund. (Sometimes a gerund was actually a noun that predated the verb, but "playing" is different from "play", as anyone can tell you.) 

We'll just have to think of an afx.
