The journey from novice to confident home chef can be a daunting one, especially if, like me, you didn’t have the luxury of learning the ropes from your parents. Home-Ec was a foreign concept during my high school days, leaving me to navigate the world of cooking through a maze of Pinterest tutorials and dubious internet recipes. As I bid farewell to the era of ramen and grilled cheese, I’ve embarked on a new culinary adventure – cooking classes in Columbus.
