People determined to cut down on dining expenses are paying for classes to teach them beginner skills like how to saute salmon. Culinary Institute of America spokesperson Jay Blotcher explained, "People take these classes as a reaction to the recession. The boot camps help people make better food shopping choices and encourage them to prepare meals more often at home."
I can see how these classes could inspire beginners to make cooking a part of their daily lives. Do you think an improvement in your cooking skills would encourage you to dine at home more often?
