Learning to bake

With my new kitchen in place I have decided to learn how to cook. I can do basic stuff but wanted to learn more. I am looking for a good cooking course in Brisbane but there is not much. I really like French food and would like to learn how to cook that. Meanwhile, I have been baking.

I do not have a mixmaster (or kitchen aide as they are now called) and have been looking at them in the shops. So pretty and soooooo expensive! Around $700!

Here is my favourite one. I love the color and it would match my kitchen perfectly!
