I never pass up a chance to learn new things related to cooking! That’s why I love Craftsy, a website that offers on-line, step-by-step instructional classes taught by world renowned instructors you can watch at your leisure from the comfort of your own home.
The classes aren’t just limited to food & cooking, they also offer cake decorating, jewelry making, photography, sewing, painting, knitting, paper crafts and lots more. There’s something for everyone, no matter what your interests are!
Once you take an on-line Craftsy class it’s yours forever to watch anytime and as often as you like, unlike other classes that you have to actually show up for at a set time and once it’s over there’s no going back. With Craftsy you can wear your comfiest yoga pants with sparkly, furry slippers and bedhead. . . you don’t even have to get out of bed! I love that.
I also love how convenient it is to watch the step-by-step instructional videos. I followed along during my class “Sweet & Savory Food Gifts” and made chocolate bark with my instructor, pausing the video when I needed time to catch up and even bookmarking key spots in the video I needed to easily return to.
Each class is more than just a video, you have access to supporting materials including recipes and tips & tricks. You can ask questions, upload pictures of your finished product, receive personalized feedback from your instructor and have discussions with your classmates.
The “Sweet & Savory Food Gifts” class is actually like 6 classes in one because, in separate videos you will learn how to make two different types of chocolate bark, french onion soup, cranberry chutney, three types of spice rubs, Limoncello and holiday pecans. The instructor doesn’t leave you hanging, she follows through to the end showing you how to package the gifts with different options included. There are also holiday tags available to print out for free.
I learned there’s more to chocolate bark than melting chocolate and sprinkling it with nuts and dried fruit. There’s a technique, a method behind it. Now I know all the little tips and tricks for making the best chocolate bark ever. I had so much fun taking this class! I want to melt every single piece of chocolate in my house and just go crazy inventing all kind of unique variations.
This version has brazil nuts, dried cranberries, shredded coconut and rice krispie treats. It’s absolutely delicious and so addictive. . . I can’t stop eating it.
