A man took to Reddit to ask if he was in the wrong for telling members of his cooking class not to eat bad food. Redditors offered their opinion and were not on this guy’s side!
A Class for Beginners
Rick, a 46-year-old man, has been taking an adult education cooking class for beginner cooks. Despite his extensive experience in the kitchen, he was excited to learn proper gourmet techniques.
But He Had Been Cooking for Years
Some people in the class cook occasionally, but one young woman in her 20s could barely cook at all.
During the first class, the teacher asked the students to share their skill level and what they hoped to get out of the class.
She Wanted to Enjoy Cooking
The girl said that her family never cooked, and she always thought cooking was stressful, but she wanted to make it fun.
Rick thought that was a great mindset, but unfortunately, it seemed that not everyone in the class shared that same goal.
So He Tried to Help Her
In the first class, Rick noticed that the girl had the burner on far too low for her soup. He turned it up for her and explained that food wouldn’t cook unless it’s hot (he says that “she didn’t seem to know”).
He also brought over all of her ingredients so she wouldn’t have to run around panicking when it came time to blend in her herbs.
A Coded Message?
The girl thanked him but moved her ingredients further down the table away from him. He thought it was rude but didn’t dwell on it.
He Was Micromanaging Her
In the next class, the girl was supposed to be melting chocolate, which is one of the easiest things to do. Rick noticed that her chocolate was starting to melt in the pot while she was having a drink.
He Called Her to Explain
He immediately turned her burner down and called her over to explain how food sometimes needs to be watched and things can happen very quickly.
She Was Moody and Rude
Again, the girl was moody and rude.
This Was Too Much for Him
Finally, their teacher put the girl in charge of the entrée in their third class.
Expecting Everyone to Try the Entrée
Up until now, she had been making appetizers and desserts, which people in the class could choose to eat or ignore. But it’s expected that everyone will at least try the entrée.
So He Tried to ‘Help’ Her
Rick was concerned for his classmates and didn’t want anyone to get sick or eat something disgusting.
‘That Doesn’t Look Completely Fresh to Me’
While they were cooking and serving themselves the different courses, he hovered around the entrée and tried to make casual comments like “That doesn’t look completely fresh to me” and asked her what help she needed.
An Inexperienced Cook Can Safely Serve the Dish
The main course was fish, and Rick didn’t think that an inexperienced cook like her could safely serve the dish to everyone else.
There Was No Need for Him to Say This!
So before eating, at the end of each class, the instructor asked the students what they learned from that day.
She Could Barely Cook at All
Rick was already frustrated from dealing with this girl who could barely cook at all, so he answered honestly, “Don’t trust someone who can’t even boil soup to bake a salmon!”
She Was Very Upset
Most people chuckled, but the girl got upset, and some folks came up to Rick afterward and said that he should have given her food a chance.
She Was This Poorly Skilled
However, Rick disagreed because he believed people could actually get sick from eating bad cooking, and this girl shouldn’t have agreed to cook for everyone if she was this poorly skilled.
He Didn’t Understand the Issue
Rick couldn’t understand why the young woman was so upset. He was only trying to help and ensure the safety of his classmates.
In His Opinion
In Rick’s opinion, the girl was not only inexperienced, but she also lacked the necessary skills to handle food safely.
Cooking Isn’t Just About Having Fun
Cooking isn’t just about having fun; it’s also about being responsible and taking precautions to ensure that the food is safe for consumption.
The girl’s lack of skills and experience could have put the health of everyone in the class at risk.
