So who among us hasn’t thought about taking a cooking class? Or maybe even teaching a cooking class?
With the popularity of the Food Channel, “Top Chef” and the like more people (I wish I had the numbers) are getting into the whole idea of learning more about what we eat. The number of students applying to culinary schools is also up.
Many years ago I took a Chinese cooking class at a local community college. It was totally lots of fun and I learned how to bone a chicken, how to crack an egg with one hand and all about seasoning. I also met some truly great people. But this was long before cooking classes became popular. Heck it was long before I even met my husband and we’ve been married thirty years!
The classes are usually divided into three catagories: One, those that count toward a career; two, those where a chef demonstrates a dish and then everyone gets to eat it and those that are hands on. I prefer the hands on. I think it is the best way to learn.
I guess I’d take some sort of Italian class although since Spanish cooking is becoming so popular that might be fun. Or maybe a knife skills class. Of course, that would mean I’d have to get some good knives.
What cooking class would you take?
