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.
