Have you ever taken a one day cooking class ?

I always laugh looking back at the Italian cooking class I took with my sister at the CIA in St Helena.We were waiting for the class to start and people were asking if this was hands on or a demonstration.Little imformation was provided.We walk into this beautiful kitchen on the top floor of the building.It was huge.After a short introduction of the chef and her cookbook.She had each pair of students cook one of the twelve recipies provided from her book.We ended up with pork marsala.Here's the recipie and the ingredients for the dish,she said. You have one hour. My sister cant cook at all.I have to slice and pound the pork into cutlets.The other people in the class are scrambling to put together their assigned recipies. Oh, and two of the stoves were not working. It was loud pounding the cutlets on that metal table even with a towel underneath.I'm kinda having fun with all the chaos.My sister is helping me out.Must be the wine being poured.Got the dish ready at the last minute.I had to wait for a stove. Ended up sneaking some butter into the recipie. Then we ate all of the dishes and gave them a critic.Was it fun ? YES. Did you learn anything.NO.
Would you take a one day class again? Not Sure. So,have you taken a cooking class? Was it fun and did you learn anything? Or want to take one?
