If you want to learn to cook, which do you prefer... to attend a cooking demo, to buy a cookbook or get a recipe online. Why?

I would definitely go for cooking demo. I am a loser when it comes to cooking and kitchen stuff. I've tried learning online and even buying cookbooks, it always ends up as a disaster. It might be better, if I actually see how the cooking is done.

Thats ok, not everybody are born as a good cook. Practice makes perfect.

I prefer to attend a cooking demo so that I will see how it is done .Sometimes we have different interpretation in reading the cookbook that to experience how it was prepared .The best for me is watching the demo so that I will learned all the techniques in cooking that particular dish.

cooking - cooking is one of my interests
In fact I like cooking. When I was a child, I was already interested in it. I followed the instructions of the cooking book and I was glad it was successful. I often buy cooking books via the net. If I want to cooking something special, then I will find the information via the net and print out the recipe. I love China

I know how to cook but i must admit that i'm not an expert.. There are still so many things i needed to learn.. if you are asking me which do i prefer, i'd say all of the above.. i'd like to send myself into the best culinary school, learn new dishes and cuisines, etc.. but i'd also like to have great cook books and recipes online for future references.. you know, not all recipes are being taught at school so it's best to have those reading materials in hand..

i think it is easy for me if i want to learn to cook,first i would ask my mother when i want to cook,she will tell me how to do step by step.second,i will learn it by myself,there are so many videos of cooking,i can download them in the internet when i need them.it is unnecessary to join a cooking demo in my opinion.

I don't like to attend a cooking demo, as it is very expensive and time schedule can let me attend one. I like to buy cookbooks, the food in the picture are so delicious and I then can try to do it by myself.

We can learn cook by our own or else by getting tips from cook book or else from online as well. But i feel the best way to learn cook is from our mother. Because my mom cooks a lot of varieties and i love to eat it. You can get more tips and tricks from her to cook. Anyhow for the first we can learn how to cook but it wont tasty, but by experiences and by changing our cooking style by own by adding new reciepes or flavours to it. Learn cooking and Happy eating.. :)

I would prefer to attend a cooking demo. Cookbook and recipes wouldn't be able to show me how long to wait before I stop stirring/baking, etc. Demos are much more informative. Practically speaking though, I would probably ask my mother to simply show me or assist me on a dish so I could learn how to fix it by myself. Thanks for the response on my discussion!

I agree with you but it just so happen that my mother doesn't really know how to cook so I asked my grandma to teach me how to cook when I was 15 years old.

I prefer just pick up my mothers cook book, she's been using it all these years and I'm loving the food. Taste great. Its simple, besides going online would be to find a recipe for very very fancy dish, one that I can't even name, hhaha.

if you want to learn cooking its all about determination and a huge amount of likeness to what you are going to do. you can learn either by a cooking demo, cookbook and a recipe online. its all upto us on how we can make it possible and lots of courage also have to do with this kind of interests. happy cooking and mylotting!
