The problem is not having a kitchen, either you do or you don't.  The 
problem at King's College is the one hour class.  Hands on cooking and 
baking often does not fit neatly into the class schedule.  I shoehorned a 
simple baking class into two hours, but I won't try that again.  The simple 
fact is that it takes a lot of time to impart practical knowledge and it is 
better done with a small group and a lot of one-on-one interaction over the 
course of a day or two.
