There are a number of different ways to learn how to cook. Or more specifically, how to cook better.
You could take a cooking class one time, you could take a cooking class that lasts 12 months (like I did), or you could just do it the old fashioned way by starting at a restaurant kitchen.
There are plenty of cookbooks to buy, get handed down from family member to family member, and even by watching cooking shows on TV.
But now there's plenty of apps for that.
Thanks to smart phones and the talents of professional bakers and chefs, you can download apps that will give you step-by-step instructions, video and recipes so that you can sharpen your skills.
This story from the Los Angeles Times has a review of several apps.
It's a great way to learn in a fast-paced but fun way. That I find is the best way to learn.
Besides, for chefs, food enthusiasts and home cooks, you can and should never stop learning.
