Have you been wondering what virtual cooking classes are?
You will be the chef, and there will be other people who are doing the same in their own homes. The person who is giving the class will be helping you in real-time for between 60 and 75 minutes.
The person/guide will be on camera but you will not be, so feel free to tune in on your computer without worrying that anyone will see you in your sweatpants.
Most online classes have a chat option, where you can ask questions while you are busy.
The chef/guide will send you a list of all the tools and ingredients that you will need before each online session. The classes do not require any specialized tools, so this will not put you out of pocket.
The list of ingredients is pretty straight forward, and most online classes avoid making dishes that use difficult to find items.
Cooking online is great for individuals and families. There are classes available for all levels – from beginners to advanced.
How do you go about booking a class?
Ok, well you have now decided that you want to cook but have no idea what.
No worries! It is simple, just click on the virtual cooking classes option, look for the weekly meals that will be taught and sign up. You do not need to book too much in advance because of the fact that there is not a limited amount of space. Most people book about 2-3 days or even 2-3 hours in advance. Just remember that you need to at least give yourself time to go to the store to find all the ingredients that you will be needing.
Once you have booked for the dish that you want to learn to make, you will get an email confirmation, as well as the following:
- A customized list of groceries that you need to buy.
- A written recipe to follow, which includes any special utensils that you may need.
- The link to the platform where your class will take place, just in case you need it.
Then it is Showtime!
Log in to the link that you were provided with a few minutes before the class is to start. Have your ingredients ready and wait for the show to begin.
After the class has finished and you have followed all the steps, you should have the perfect meal in front of you, ready to eat.
