    There's a lot of recipes out there, from the simple ones to the most difficult ones. Basic cooking like making instant noodles or frying eggs shouldn't be that hard to learn. Practice practice practice.

    who funds you? just curious.
    My department and the Faculty. I'm in a pretty nice position where I don't have a government research council distracting me from my studies, but my stipend follows the amount set by RCUK.

    The government needs to make cooking classes compulsory in High School along with Swimming.

    The amount of students who can't swim is astounding so is cooking but both should be addressed.

    For anyone who says they can't cook but want to to be able to, I highly recommend Sorted Food. Their recipes are all aimed at being easy and accessible, and are really good for the most part!

    We did cooking when we were in secondary school, but there were some issues with it:

    1 - we only did it occasionally. We did "Food and Textiles Technology", which cooking was just one part of. It wasn't very thorough for that reason and only covered a few recipes.

    2 - because of school time, there were limits on what we could do. The sort of things I cook at home now would not have been possible to do at school - it would either take too long, it would be difficult to take home, or it would be impossible to get it home while it was still warm.

    So if you want to improve cooking in schools, which is a good idea, you've got some obstacles to get around.
