The two of the finest benefits of learning how to cook:
The ability to improve your health and lifestyle
Countless people choose eating badly, especially because they don’t know how to cook healthy food. They wrongly believe that you have to have some special skill to be able to whip together a solid meal. This is simply not the case. If you are willing to take cooking and baking classes, you’ll be able to throw together many good meals with great ingredients. These meals will be healthier than what you might have eaten in the past. You’ll find yourself eating in more often, and you might be able to lose some weight at the same time, if this is something that you’d be interested in.
Cooking and baking saves money
You may have to pay a little bit of money up front to learn new cooking and baking skills. That money will work out as a good investment over the long run. Think quickly about all of the money that you spend on eating out. Even if you go for a light and casual meal, you are probably spending quite a bit. People who cook their own food are able to put this money away. Think about what you might be able to do if you are saving hundreds of rands per month by cooking your own great food. Many take awesome vacations or put more money into their investments. And in these hard time with the South African economy and possibly globally – saving money is a must.
The Discovery Healthy Studio:
Nestled in the glorious Discovery Building in the Sandton metropolis, this cooking studio is not your average – with a welcoming view of the city, a drink bar with selections for the time of day you may be cooking (a tea, refreshing waters with herbs and fruit and juice; and for later in the day and dinner – a great selection of wine), a beautiful table ready for when you have cooked and are ready to share your spoils.
The cooking areas is the amazingly detailed, with all the ingredients you’ll need for each recipe and equipment, the best part is you have incredible chefs from the Prue Leith Chef’s Academy and team of assistants ready to assist and give you some cooking or baking secrets that will take your cooking game to the next level (Thank you Chef Bonnie). The cooking experience starts with a session with the lead chef cooking a recipe or two and then it is your turn…recipes, ingredients and equipment ready…set. Once your cooking is done, the chefs will help set up an attractive harvest table to rival any other – and even with the knowledge of having put in the work, it will still seem so surreal and a proud moment I must admit. You’ll dish up and taste other inspiring chef dishes, just like they will get to taste yours – everyone will be seated, feasting and conversation…nothing beats good food and new friends. This is a wonderful experience for singles, couples, mom and daughter dues, sisters and everyone.
Discovery created this incredible studio to build on their ethos of healthy living and it does not disappointment – not only to do you learn to cook new cuisines you never thought you could make, but you learn even more.
Thank you Discovery for letting Lishe be part of this healthy living revolution, we’ll certainly be back.
