Cost of Cooking Classes Paying Off For At-Home Cooks

We tend to think about taking classes to further our careers, but some people are convinced that cooking classes are a great way to better their cooking skills at home. Those who aren't close to being Julie or Julia might consider investing in classes that teach important basics and instill a greater sense of confidence in the kitchen.

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?

Cook at home more than I already do? Nope. I guess if you don't know ANYTHING about cooking and you're a kinesthetic learner, then cooking classes would be a good investment. There's a lot of things I don't know how to do in terms of cooking (like sauteing salmon), but I personally wouldn't go take a class to learn how to do it. It wouldn't make me feel any better about my culinary abilities. Why not find a way you do know around it (baking instead of pan-frying or sauteing, for example)?
