Taking cooking classes will prepare you for a career in the culinary arts. Classes can be hands-on or taught demo style. The techniques you learn will have
an immediate impact on the dishes you prepare for friends and family. A cooking class can teach you cooking terminology, basic culinary skills like knife skills, specific techniques like pastry and baking skills, how to make soups, stocks
and broth, master sauce making, and introduce you to cuisines from around the world.
