    Default What cooking class would you do?

    I have a voucher for a cooking class and I can't decide.

    Options are:
    BBQ tapas
    Mediterranean
    BBQ Mexican
    Healthy eating masterclass
    Gourmet masterclass
    Around the world
    Spanish
    Rustic Italian
    Thai

    All of these appeal to my palate, but my cooking spirit which has been broken by being time poor and feeding a(n extremely fussy, need to hide every scrap of vegetable) fussy 5 year old says 'why bother?'. I'm thinking that the things I have an outside chance of dd eating are the Mediterranean or Italian ones, but I think I have less to learn from them. We could also stand to eat healthier.... But I'm just not sure where I will get the most out of the experience.

    Ooh Id do bbq tapas or mexican - great for coming into the warmer months and xmas , you would get some great marinade and spice mix ideas I would think - I'm sure there would be some recipes you could adjust for the kids - and a style you may not know a lot about which I think is more fun to learn and watch

    I'd do the rustic Italian, but only because I really want to learn how to make pasta properly!

    I would love Mediterranean but based on fussy child criteria would the healthy eating potentially give tips to sneak veggies in?

    I would do the tapas or Mexican..and I wouldn't be worrying about which one would suit my child best! I would be doing it for me, and which one I would enjoy to learn from more.

    It depends. If you're going for you. ..some time out and fun. ..I'd do the gourmet one.

    If it's for more practical reasons I'd probably do the healthy eating or BBQ tapas.

    I doubt that the class would be geared toward hidden veges, but there might be some other great things to learn.

    It is more for fun. I am a pretty capable cook, just one with the spirit beaten out of me.
