We’ve teamed up with Learning with Experts, a platform which allows keen home cooks to learn directly from the UK’s top chefs. Here’s how it works.

Learning new skills online can sometimes be a little passive – you read an article, watch a video or follow some instructions – but there’s never anybody there to step in and let you know when you’re doing something wrong. And with lockdown making experiences through our phones and laptops more important than ever, a lot of us are looking for something more than a Youtube video when trying to do something productive.

That’s where Learning with Experts steps in. By creating online classrooms where students can collaborate, compare notes and help one another, there’s a feeling of community created around the video-led tutorials that make up each course. This is particularly important when trying to improve culinary skills ­– being able to compare how you’ve followed a recipe with others is the easiest way to spot areas for improvement. The online classrooms essentially bring the idea of a cookery school into your own home, and if you go for the ‘Expert’ option, you’ll even have your assignments and dishes reviewed by the course tutor.

The calibre of the tutors at Learning with Experts is another large draw for home cooks. With the likes of Michel Roux Jr teaching classical French cuisine, Paul A Young sharing the secrets of artisanal chocolate work, Richard Bertinet turning you into a top baker and Kirk Haworth unveiling the tricks needed to make vegan cookery truly shine, you’re in incredibly safe hands and bound to learn something new.
