Cooking is an important part of life. After all, we need food to survive and what we choose to cook and eat can affect our health and wellbeing.
Obviously, eating predates cooking but cooking is shown to date back at least 1 million years! Of course, ancient humans weren't making soufflés or anything fancy but they were preparing food with heat or fire, something which no other animal does.
Controlling fire allowed us to cook food and humans later created hearths, stone- or brick-lined fireplaces used to heat food and ceramics allowed us to boil water for cooking.
Much more recently, the industrial revolution allowed mass-production and with canning and refrigeration, we were able to cook food with ingredients from further afield and create more interesting dishes.
Nowadays, cooking is an important part of everyday life and in the developed world, it's uncommon for people to eat food that hasn't been cooked, prepared, or treated for consumption.
If you'd like to prepare more food yourself, you might consider cookery school or cooking classes so here's why cooking is so important, the challenges you may face, and how you can find a tutor who's available to teach you online or in Edinburgh.
Cooking can teach us a lot about food and our relationship with food. It's useful to know what goes into the food you eat and what we're putting into our body.
Cooking is also a great way to learn about other cultures. Food is one of the easiest ways to try something from another culture. While you can listen to music from all over the world online, you mightn't understand the words if it's in a foreign language. When it comes to food, we can all taste without the language barrier getting in the way.
Food is also very social. Eating together is a great way to socialise and a shared love of certain foods can bring people together. There's no better experience than sharing a good meal with loved ones, especially if you cooked the food that everyone is eating and enjoying.
Finally, if you want to work as a chef in restaurants or hotels, knowing how to cook is essential! If you want to become a professional chef, you have to study how to cook.
Cooking, especially at a higher level, can be difficult and challenging. While there are plenty of dishes that anyone can make, regularly cooking well requires experience and skills that can only be gained through years of practice and study.
Cooking isn't necessarily cheap, either. While some celebrity chefs will attest that you can cook the best meals on a budget, not everyone has an extensive herb garden in their back yard or plenty of the expensive pots and pans or state-of-the-art kitchen required to make some of these recipes.
If you cook regularly and are experimental in what you cook, you may find yourself having to spend money on not just the ingredients for making your food but also utensils and equipment used in the preparation of your food.
In Scotland and Edinburgh, students can study the National 5 Practical Cookery qualification. In the course, students are expected to learn various cookery skills, food preparation techniques, and the processes required to follow recipes. They'll also be expected to be able to decorate and garnish their dishes appropriately.
In addition to cooking, students need to understand the characteristics of different ingredients and how sustainable they are. Furthermore, they need to know about the nutritional value and dietary advice that relates to the ingredients they use.
Finally, they need to learn how to plan and prepare meals while working safely and hygienically. Unsurprisingly, this course is highly practical and students will spend more time showing off their skills and abilities than they will be writing about them.
If you really want to learn how to cook, there are few better ways to learn than from an experienced cooking tutor. With private tuition, your lessons will be tailored to you, your preferred learning style, and the types of food you want to make and eat.
While there are plenty of good cooking courses available at cookery schools, you don't really get to decide what you learn and with so many other students in larger classes, you mightn't get to benefit from all your teacher's experience as they have other people to deal with.
In a private cooking lesson, you'll often be the only student and this allows the tutor to focus on you and what you're cooking. Preparing the perfect meal hangs on a knife-edge (literally in some cases) and it takes one wrong move to completely ruin a meal so it's always good to have someone with skills and experience carefully watching you as you cook. It'd be awful to spend nearly an hour preparing a meal to ruin it at the last moment!
