I keep finding courses for chefs or courses for bread making or Italian/Thai/Indian food etc but no intermediary course to improve existing skills. I'm not sure what it would teach in all honesty but I don't know how to improve more. Other then practise practise practise, does anyone have any recommendations?

I love to cook, not great at baking, I find it so relaxing and a great way to destress. So hopefully I'll be able to use these forums for plenty inspiration.

Hi, Emma. I'm over the border from you, (just) in Cheshire on the Lancashire/Derbyshire borders. Can't help with the cookery courses but you are in the right place here for cooking discussions.
Donít look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.
