Virtual Cooking Classes
A Fun Way to Include Family from Near and Far!
Trying out new things is always enjoyable! We offer six virtual cooking classes, each with a unique learning experience. You can choose to attend one class, three classes, or all six of them!
We'll send you a shopping list a week before the class every month. After the course, you'll get recipes and a recorded Zoom class for one week. If you miss the class, you can watch the recorded Zoom class at your convenience and schedule a 30-minute Q&A session with us. Please note that only one computer per household is allowed, but there is no limit to the number of attendees in the home
