Help! I Need Advice on Picking the Right Cooking Class

Good Questions

Pin it button big
Q: I am a recent college graduate looking to take a culinary course for the first time. I'm interested in learning some new techniques for preparing and cooking ingredients and maybe meeting some younger like-minded people along the way, but being in Cleveland, there is a surprising number of choices. 

On one hand, I could take a few weeknight classes, but I fear they are more for getting new recipes and having fun rather than teaching technique. On the other end of the spectrum, I could look into taking actual culinary courses from a university, but since I don't currently intend on doing anything professionally, that might be overkill in terms of money and time invested. Any advice from those who have been in similar situations would be great.
