How to host your own virtual cooking class!

All across the food community, many folks who used to cook for people have found themselves with fewer customers and more time on their hands. A common trend arising is the virtual cooking class, allowing those with skills in the kitchen to continue feeding their community by teaching others how to make the meals on their own. Many chefs at restaurants are turning to these virtual classes for small fees in order to keep afloat, but anyone can host a class, even casually amongst a group of friends! (Ex: if you miss your normal Sunday brunch crew, make food together over Zoom one Sunday morning - have everyone ‘teach’ one part of the meal!) Sharing food is a powerful connecting tool and virtual cooking classes offer the opportunity for people to come together and cook as a community. 

If you are interested in hosting your own virtual cooking class, we at Kitchen Commons would love to help you organize and run your show! As a supporter of in-person community kitchens during ‘normal times,’ we feel that virtual cooking classes are a great way to stay engaged, share conversations about food, and support others as many tackle much more home cooking than ever before. Kitchen Commons has supported one of our founders, Florence Jenkins, through her classes with her church which are always a ton of fun and a great way to reconnect with faces you may not have seen in a while! 

Here are some tips if you are considering hosting a class for your local community/family/friends! If you need more support, reach out to Kitchen Commons and we’ll do our best to point you in the right direction!
