These days almost everything we do is online: work, some social events, online courses and even cooking classes!
I loved teaching cooking classes in person in my kitchen, but they have to be held online now.
Personally, I love hosting online cooking classes and I wanted to share how, you as a participant, can get the most out of your next online cooking classes so that you love them too!
5 reasons online cooking classes rock:
You don’t have to leave your house.
When taking an online class, you can stay in the comfort of your own home in your PJs, you don’t have to worry about getting a sitter for the kids (they can even help you cook!).
If you can’t make the time of the class, you can always watch it again on your own time.
You get to meet people from all over the world.
When you join a cooking class online, you never know who you’re going to meet.
I’ve had classes with people from all over Canada mixed in with people from the U.S. or other parts of the world. You can share stories and get a glimpse into their world through their cameras.
The food is for you and for you only.
When I held cooking classes in my home, we usually made just enough food for the participants in the room. Rarely were there leftovers because we ate it all!
Now I do love in-person classes because we always sat down, ate together, and shared stories, but the cool thing about online classes is that all the food you make is for you and your family. Many times my participants don’t have to cook again for a few days or even a week.
There are so many classes to choose from.
You’d be amazed at the number of classes you can take online when you’re searching for cooking classes. From Indian cooking to cooking with Nonnas in Italy to cooking nourishing family meals, the sky is really the limit to what types of classes you can find.
You can connect with friends and family wherever they live.
Some of my favourite classes are the ones where I’m connecting family from various parts of the country.
They love seeing their loved ones and they also love knowing that they’re all eating the same thing together from their own homes.
