The Secret Sauce to Learning

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. ~ Benjamin Franklin
I ran across this quote and it got me thinking about real and lasting change, something most of us struggle with. For my master's program, I listened to lectures from professors and many authoritative guest speakers, researched and wrote papers and completed projects, but the "hand's on" cooking lab courses were the root of real change for me. Exposure to new ingredients, new flavors and new methods of cooking all shared in an environment with others who were curious was the key to inspiration and better eating for me.
This is a great time of year to get involved in a cooking class as we look to soon opt for lighter clothing and increased movement with the approaching warm weather.
Is there a particular cuisine that intrigues you or piques your taste buds? Do you wish to add some zip or zing to your diet? Or do you simply want to cook some of your favorite foods where you have control over the ingredients? Check your local community college, grocery store, wellness center, and kitchen supply store (like Sur La Table or William Sonoma) for an interesting cooking class. There are plenty of opportunities to learn online too.
If you are looking for a personal 1-on-1 cooking class, I can assist you or provide a reference. If you simply wish to tweek some of your favorite recipes to create healthier more nutritious versions, I can help too. Contact me at 410-991-6812.
