Online Cooking Classes

“Online Cooking Classes”

What are the advantages to taking online cooking classes? Well for one, you can take them anytime-anywhere you have an internet connection. Plus, maybe you’re the type of person that doesn’t like to ask questions in front of other people. Or maybe you don’t like to be around other people when you cook, if so then it looks like online cooking classes are the answer for you.

Why weren’t online cooking classes around when I got started?

If there was such a thing as online cooking classes when I got started in this business it sure would have made things a lot easier for me. Instead of online cooking classes I had the old traditional way of learning, being thrown to the wolves.
At the school I went to we didn’t have the luxury of going at our own pace like you do with online cooking classes. Instead we got there at 6 or 7 in the morning and did whatever we needed to do to get lunch out by 10:30 for all the students, faculty and staff at the school. So one day I might be doing breads, the next I might be doing salads and the next doing hot food. In a circumstance like that I didn’t have time to stop and ask questions of my instructor, a lot of times I just had to figure it out on my own. Then if it wasn’t right, I had to learn from my mistake and do it right the next time.
In a setting like that it is very bittersweet. In online cooking classes I could stop, pause, rewind and reread anything I want. In a professional kitchen you sometimes feel like you so little time you can barely even breathe. But, you learn a lot by just getting out and doing it too, maybe even more than just watching it.
The good thing about these online cooking classes is that the information can be taken at your own pace and repeated as many times as you want.
