How to get the most out of this course

The course is structured as follows:

  • A series of video instructions for each recipe
  • A printable recipe with a tip sheet and photograph of the finished dish for each recipe
  • Audio instruction, brief chat and tips for each recipe
  • A Cook with Curiosity section, where there are more printable sheets with lots of detailed information regarding the cooking processes and much more. So do make sure you check that section out.

I would encourage you to start at the beginning and take each recipe one by one. At the end of each recipe, make some notes with regards to how you did. What was your feedback on the recipe?
We all have different tastes, maybe you added more sweetness into the dish or maybe you added more seasoning, or changed some ingredients to suit your tastes. I would encourage you to make notes to this effect so that when you are repeating the recipe you have a perfect recipe for your taste.
And do share photographs of your finished dish, tag me Catherine Fulvio and don’t forget to use the hashtag #CatherineFulvioOnlineCooking and #cookwithcuriosity

Do you have any questions, need support?
You will find lots of tips to company each recipe both on the recipe sheet and in the audio.
