DIY Le Cordon Bleu Training

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 


I would love to undertake real training for cooking and whilst I appreciate that the bulk of training is feedback, it would be great if anyone had any ideas for a DIY, at-home, Grand Diplome. I know that’s it’s a big ask but any thoughts, reading materials, discovered course structures would be spiffing.


Its probably worth mentioning that that this is pure hobby and not to enter into the professional world.

Certainly. Read every post, recipe, conversation, and workshop on eGullet. There will be a final exam.  


But seriously, folks, as a start, you could do a lot worse than reading through the dearly departed eGullet Culinary Institute (2003-2006, with a very brief resurrection in 2009). The eG Spotlight Fridge, from 2001-2006, also is fun: one  two.

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."
