I own one and we have chefs, cookbook authors and restaurantuers from around the community come in and teach classes. They are wonderful!

I used to just follow recipes but didn’t recognize the simple techniques that were common to all. Once I started to figure out basic cooking techniques I started to read recipes completely differently. Now I look at the flavor profile and I’ll follow my own method because I recognize the techniques required to make any dish. New dishes always turn out the first time because I don’t blindly follow a recipe method that could inherently have flaws like different sizes of ingredients or stove temp. If there is one thing I don’t do it’s follow “Cook for X minutes”, now I know to cook till it’s done and I know how to determine that on my own.

It’s been a slowly-but surely process learning from anyone whose given me the opportunity to learn. I remember my uncle telling me how to make pasta with chicken when I was a freshman in college–I basically lived off that recipe that first year. A best friend in college taught us her famous Banana Cream Pie recipe which we have sworn to secrecy, yet remains the number one recipe I’m most asked for. In college I worked at a fancy (well, for Provo) restaurant that was usually pretty slow and the chef taught me how to make a killer “cream of” soups including butternut squash and mushroom (the key: butter and cream). Being married I’ve learned to branch out more and try more recipes and trust my instinct. Friends, blogs and cook books all contribute to my repertoire. A little here and a little there. I’m no chef, but I’m pretty comfortable in the kitchen and always enjoy learning something new.

And yes, an online class like you described sounds dreamy.

I need that too. This vaguely reminds me of the Anne Marie Slaughter conversation — y’all, I can’t even find the time to READ about women having it all!

Granted, I usually just EAT that day, but Bill does our Sunday cooking. And there’s nothing more fun than a day spent crafting in the kitchen!

I love your mom’s advice – and isn’t it true? If you can read, you can follow a recipe. Amen to that!

I’d enjoy a class about that!

I definitely love to eat, and think learning how to cook is often a combination of taking lessons from others–like Mom or Food Network–and plain old trial and error. After all, doesn’t practice make perfect? :)

Now, I would sell my soul to figure out how to be a personal chef, so that I could get paid to cook for a living.
No one specifically taught me, but when I started to be interested in it and call my mom to tell her what I made, she’d be encouraging and tell me that if I can read, I can follow a recipe.
Now, most of the purchases that I make on Amazon are cooking – related books. I spend a good portion of my Sunday cooking and baking, so that we can just heat up leftovers during the week. And have lots of cookies, to eat, too.
