What should I wear to a cooking class?

When attending a cooking class, it's best to wear clothing that you won't mind getting dirty and that isn't too baggy or cumbersome. It's also a good idea to ask whether you'll be provided with an apron or if you should bring one from home. If you have long hair, be sure to tie it up.

Should I learn to cook?

Learning to cook may help you eat healthier and save money on groceries, as it lets you start with raw meats and vegetables rather than buying prepared foods or pre-made meals. Cooking can be a fun hobby, and it can give you opportunities to host family get togethers or entertain friends.
