For the past year and a half, I have migrated my cooking classes to a virtual format using Zoom. I’ve done one-on-ones, small groups gathered in a single home and even provided regular connection for small groups as they maintain social distancing or bridge the divide of geographical separation. What I have learned is that format works great. My clients love that they work on their schedule and its like having me by their side, without the challenge of scheduling and transportation. By cooking in your own home, you have a chance to use (and improve) your own equipment, you get to decide the pace that makes sense for you; you get to work with the ingredients that you’re comfortable with and even learn to better utilize items you already own. Here’s a few formats and ideas, but please remember all my work is custom, so if you have an idea or request, reach out; let’s design a class for you.
Dinner on the Table in 60 Minutes – $75
This class is designed for the experienced cook with a decently stocked kitchen who is looking to add variety to their repertoire, to learn a new skill or to learn techniques to speed things up. Before we meet, you email/text pictures or a list of produce and protein options and I give you a few choices of dishes that we can take on together. Class is an impromptu, no recipe based class where I guide you on technique and timing to get a great meal put together. This class is designed for 1-2 people working in the same kitchen. Add up to 2 more people in your kitchen for an additional $25. Add an additional household for $50/$75. Add extra time (if you want to slow the pace down or take on something more complex) for $20 for each additional 15 minutes (or $75 for a full hour).
Custom classes – starting at $200
This is great for skill building, tackling a new diet, learning a new technique or bringing friends and family together. I provide recipes, a shopping list and a prep list for items to tackle before class. All menus and recipes are custom to your needs. And the options are endless; if you have an idea or a need, let’s chat.
$200 – 1 person, 2 hours of instruction via Zoom
$250 – up to 4 people in one household or a second person via Zoom ($50 for each additional household; up to 5 total)
$20 – for each additional 15 minutes or $75/hour
We can work together if you have a bigger group; this often requires me bringing on a co-host.
