Do you have some extra time off for the end of the year? Besides catching up on books and friends, why not take a cooking class! A new series of online classes called "Think Like a Chef" on Skillshare includes mini cooking classes where experts walk you through a lesson and help you with a project assignment. So go ahead: Work with a new cut of meat, learn how to make pickles, and get inspiration from a painting for your next recipe.
If you're new to Skillshare, it's an online learning community where experts in their field share their skills and insights. Skillshare is free for one hour a month of classes, and after that, it's just $8 a month for unlimited access.
I've included the intro video to each series so you can get a feel for the class. What do you have to lose?
