The 3 online cooking classes  I did were Pan Sauces,Roasting Techniques and The Art of Stir Frying and I really enjoyed them -see my comments below under Final Verdict.  Craftsy is a little different to other online cooking courses I have done in that it is conducted by experts who have written their own cook books in their area of expertise – the instructors give you great tips and shortcuts on the detailed topics. In addition, the courses assumes a very basic level of understanding so they are very easy to follow for the beginner cook.

 Final Verdict

I really enjoyed the 3 courses I did i.e.  Pan Sauces,Roasting Techniques and The Art of Stir Frying – as I learnt a whole new set of skills. In addition, you can also ask questions in the forum which is very helpful – what I also found great was that sometimes the instructors give examples of how not to do the dish- I have definitely made these fundamental mistakes in my dishes in the past. The video and audio quality is of a very high standard. Try Craftsy Online Cooking
