How to host your own virtual cooking class!

Adrienne Hohensee

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.
