    Alternatively, they could take some initiative and use this wonderful tool called the internet…

      Did you miss the tired and overworked comment? Feeling exhausted and burned out doesn’t inspire most people to spend a large amount of time and effort learning something new.

      Telling people to suck it up and just do it is a great way to feel smug while achieving nothing.

      I don’t think online resources are necessarily a replacement for in-person classroom instruction, and even if they were, it’s not a reason to take the option of home ec classes away from those who want it.

      That said, I think it’s at least a good thing that so many good internet resources on cooking exist, and it helps mitigate the problem to some degree. Still, it takes time and energy to seek out those resources, learn from them, and put them into practice. Not easy to do for anyone who has been worked far past the point of burnout and are still just scraping by.

      Cool. I checked and found the following types, which one should i go to. /s

      • 90% personal blog/vlog with vague cooking tips sprinkled within

      • instruction video where you need a specific device or machine from sponsor brand

      • overly confident with a sidedish of just as clueless and stupid

      • overly confident with a sidedish of overreliance on uncommon tool/machine they assume everyone has

      • recipe which actually makes no sense taste wise but sounds cool on paper and generates clicks

      • legit recipe but ingredients and keywords changed into google buzzword ones (bacon gets more hits then Italian ham)

      • some actually good kitchen instructors that you need to know about in advance cause there burried below the mess.

      I really enjoyed cooking with dog actually, shame that after my workday i am no longer in a condition to operate anything that can burn

      Yeah, those folks who work 16 hours and have no cooking knowledge should go out and buy a bunch of pots and pans and knives and a ton of ingredients. They don’t need to sleep and have plenty of extra money to waste on ruined food.

      What a douchey take.

        really they could start somewhere and simple and build from it and be MUCH better off than fast food daily, for nutrition and money and time. throw some raw chicken on a grill and flip it over after 12 minutes. cut some veggies/fruit up. eventually add sauces or cheese or something.

          Tell me your work isnt sucking 100% of your energy without saying so.

          To be fair though thats a good thing, no job should exhaust people to the point of rendering them unable to take care of themselves but for many of us that is not reality.

              It isn’t sustainable, which is what i am trying to explain my doctor.

              I already stopped working full time and i landed an otherwise perfect job for me, i have no real bosses and a lot of freedom to choose my work.

              I just happen to be autistic is all. The way my energy works doesn’t fit with this “work hours concept” a good work balance of me would be going to the office late when its dark, calm and quiet so i can focus, do twice the amount of work in half the time and just go home when i feel tired combined with a no strings attached guaranteed livable income.

              I can’t partner up to start my own business because the concept of profit is immoral to me. My current job provides tax-paid free healthcare for kids in contrast.

              The clutch is, so many people aren’t autistic and have it so much worse. Jobs where your boss gets upset because you’re sick, getting pressured to work overtime and still not being able to afford rent. How about cacao farmers who work permanently to pay of a debt to their employers and get fined for missing a days work?

              The modern world is not sustainable and headed for disaster.

      Except every recipe is written by some blogger that has to share their entire life history as to why microwaving a can of corn has changed their life.
