G/Grandma, a story there, after I retired with plenty of time and money I went to a gentlemen's cookery class supposedly for one year.
I had some experience though the Gentlemen of decideed age obviously had not, the Tutor and her helper would watch one lot of ovens I would watch the others more so when they were boiling milk or anything.
Janet asked me to do another year then another so I ended up as Sous Chef to Janet and her helper. Next door were the ladies of a sewing class who would invade our kitchens pinching the food. I had made a Victoria sponge one day and went home with a slice left and a proposal of marriage, Joan would have had something to say about that as it was one of her friends. Certainly had a funny life at times.
