Update 4/3/2020: This is a live, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. Guest list is limited to 12 students to create an interactive, dynamic experience. The Instructor will be assisted by a remote Event Lead who will facilitate conversation during class and ensure all students are attended to. We encourage students to have all the ingredients and equipment set up before the class begins to prepare for cooking during the class. We will be recording the class and we hope to make the recording available to students after an editing process to protect the privacy of our students’ homes.
