*Top Ten Tuesday* Characters Who Would Make Great Cooking Instructors


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Joood - Hooligan of Platypire reviews bossed me into doing this, so I guess this is a thing I do now. 

This weeks theme is characters who would make great leaders. But they're leaving the leaders of what, up to us, so being the fat kid that I am, I'm going to focus on characters who would be great cooking instructors.




Eloise from How to Change a Life by Stacey Ballis would be an excellent cooking instructor (because she already kind of is). As part of her job as a personal chef, she spends one day a week tutoring a ten-year old who has dreams of making it onto Master Chef Junior at some point. And there is just a whole lot of talk in this book about hoity toity sounding foods that seem really daunting to prepare without some sort of instruction first. 








I'd love to take a baking class from Jillian. She's only a teenager in Kissing Max Holden by Katy Upperman, but she makes some amazing sounding baked goods and I bet she could teach me a thing or two to take my baking game to the next level. 













Ava Adair from Diving Under by Ginna Moran could definitely teach me some things about baking as well. (This baking thing may be a bit of a theme for this post because I LOVE to bake). Ava and I could definitely have some fun in the kitchen together. 












Aimee from Everything We Keep by Kerry Lonsdale could definitely teach me some things about running a coffee shop and preparing delicious baked goods that would pair well with said coffee. And she's probably got more delicious recipes up her sleeves that I'm just not remember off the top of my head. 










If Ondine from Cooking for Picasso by Camille Aubray were giving French cooking lessons, I would sign up to take them in a heartbeat. She makes some amazing sounding foods basically at the drop of a hat, often with limited resources. She could definitely teach me some things. 









Wine is an important part of every meal (or at least it should be!) and Ava and Caterina from The Winemakers by Jan Moran could definitely teach me a thing or two about the best wines to eat with what foods. Beyond that, they might be able to teach us how to make our own wine at home and wouldn't that be neat? 











I would take a baking class from any of the characters in The Art of Baking Blind by Sarah Vaughan. This is the kind of cooking competition I would love to be a judge for for sure, and think all of the contestants could start their own cooking classes if they wanted. 









If Ethan of Taste Test by L.B. Dunbar was teaching a cooking class, I'd sign up for the eye candy alone. The fact that he could also teach me how to make all sorts of delicious food while I was there would just be like cherry icing on the cake. 








This list would not be complete if I did not include the amazing Julia Child and My Life in France. She's a very obvious person to include on this list considering what she went on to do in her life after her time in France. I'd love to be able to go back in time to take lessons from her personally though. It would be awesome. 





Alright, so I'm one short of ten, which is where you come in. Tell me, what fictional character would you love to take a cooking class from and why. - Katie

    1. I'm a decent baker, but if I had someone teach me the how and why of the mixes in recipes, I could be a bit more creative with my baking I think.
