3 Types of Cooks - Which One Are You?

Intuitive cook, Improv cook, Recipe cook—which type are you? What are each of these home cook types like, and how can knowing which type of home cook you are help you be a better cook? In the over 300 cooking classes taught at Red Stick Spice Co., (and YES—Anne’s counted them!) the instructors and staff have noticed some patterns… some styles… some types, if you will. Now, this is no criticism, in fact Smidgen host and owner of Red Stick Spice Co. Anne Milneck thinks knowing your type is actually a boon. There’s something to be learned from each type, and knowing your type can improve your cooking skills. By the end of the episode, you’ll know what kind of cook you are and have specific tips and recipes to try to understand who you are in the kitchen even better.
