Culinary classes teach people the rudiments of cooking, including how to assemble specific dishes and plan complementary menus. Some colleges focus on degree programs for aspiring chefs while others offer short sessions for community members who want to learn a little bit about cooking for their own purposes.
In general, culinary classes can include everything from basic introductory courses on finding one's way around a kitchen to butchery to theory of presentation. Most home chefs will probably not need a full, yearlong program and certificate and would be better served focusing on shorter courses aimed at enthusiastic amateurs.
