Another idea you could try would be to start browsing the food magazines in the supermarket or your newsagent. If you find one that appeals you could start off by buying a copy and then experimenting with the recipes. It would be cheaper than rushing headlong into a cookery course without deciding what direction you want to go. I can't suggest any titles because I'm on the other side of the pond to you.
Or you could browse Amazon for cookery books. Second hand ones can be very cheap and a lot of them look almost brand new. I like some of Delia Smith's books, I'm am a serious Elizabeth David fan, likewise Jane Grigson and I find Nigella Lawson interesting although she is something of a plagiarist. I've got all of Ina Garten's books and Jamie Oliver is good when he's not preaching.
