Hello and welcome to my new obsession

I've recently decided that I wanted to learn how to cook. I'm not entirely certain what my reasons are, but a few of them include wanting to become more confident in the kitchen and wanting to build some foundational skills.

I let my fingers do the walking and found a 6 week course by a company called "Cooking for Blokes". I rang and asked if they taught women too and was told with a resounding "Yes!" that they do. After finding out that information, I let it sit for several months as I ... basically sat around and did nothing about it, really.

Well, the good news is - I finally got round to signing up for the course, and BOY! am I glad that I did.


I learned many, many, many of the basic skills that a budding cook would find essential and more than that - I have loads and loads of fun, plus I've discovered something ... I love to cook. Really, truly, love to cook.

I'll talk a bit more about Cooking for Blokes in a later post, but right now, I just wanted to say "Hello!" and introduce myself.

I'm going to blog about what I cook and what I'm discovering in this wonderful world of cooking.

  1. How very cool! Hope you have lots of fun and learn everything you'd ever wanted to!

    Now that I'm finally discovering counterspace in my kitchen, I'm thinking about taking a course. The only one in the area I can find is a very expensive, very targeted (eg, cook a gourmet vegetarian meal featuring broccoli raab and cactus flowers) course. Now that a culinary institute is opening nearby, I'm wondering if they'll be offering regular blokes or blokesses some courses. Probably not.

  2. Carol, I hope you do find a course that you will enjoy, have great fun and learn a lot. I can't even begin to articulate what this course has done for me in terms of confidence, desire and passion for cooking. It's definitely money well spent.
