There are a variety of things you can learn from a television chef. You can learn how to properly cook various meals. You learn how to know when food is properly cooked. You also learn methods for cutting foods of all types. You may have learned how to fold in whipped cream so it does not deflate. You may have learned how to make a cheese cake in a water bath without burning yourself. You may love those special views (like peering in from the interior of the oven to the television host.) You can learn to do everything from make a fantastic drink to learning where the dish originated.
