From cooking basics to culinary mastery, this question / answer open forum style approach helps you leap past what has been holding you back from getting your skills to the next level. After having access to advice from a professional chef you'll be able to go home and practice new concepts, then report back to the group with your successes and failures, and gain more insightful advice. You'll soon find that the more you know about cooking, the more you'll want to do it.

This group is for beginner cooks, intermediate cooks, and advanced cooks alike.

Anyone interested in joining this group must have a profile photo (of yourself, not a cartoon, your pet, or your baby) uploaded. Our members agree that it makes the group more personable when you can actually see the other members that you'll be in the group with. Also we ask that you answer ALL of the profile questions so others can get to know you better, and we can better plan our sessions.
