@ Good Morning Addie,
I wanted to mention that a Chef by the name of Fernando Del Cerro, who has One Michelin Star ( Casa Josť in Aranjuez, Madrid, Spain ) told me at an interview: " COOKING IS NOT A DEFINED SCIENCE AS YOU CAN ADD A BIT OF THIS AND THAT, HOWEVER, BAKING IS A SCIENCE FOR ONE MUST BE EXACT " ...
Thanks for sharing your lovely anecdote ... I believe in Culinary Courses for the basic techniques and Le Cordon Bleu truly has short term excellent courses A to Z on all types of cuisines, baking and culinary techniques ...
One can be a fab cook, and a lousey baker or vice versa !
Have nice wkend.,
