How Does a Virtual Cooking Class Work?

The experience provider will send you information on anything you need to prepare before your online cookery class such as equipment and ingredients. With some classes, you might be posted a kit to use. Then, when your event comes around, a professional chef will set up an online video chat room which you’ll all receive a link to. They’ll then teach you how to prepare and cook a dish. It’s a live and interactive workshop so each step with be broken down for you and you can ask the chef questions if you need to, so all abilities can join in and enjoy unleashing their creative sides.

What Food Will We Make in a Virtual Cooking Class?

This varies depending on which of our virtual cooking classes you book. It could be sweet or savoury, from lasagne to chocolate truffles, depending on your taste. Check out virtual experiences listings to see exactly what you could be making.

Do I Have to Provide the Ingredients for a Virtual Cooking Class?

Some classes will post you all the ingredients before your event and others require you to do a bit of shopping beforehand. The experience provider will let you know before your class takes place so you’ve got time to organise everything you need.

How Much Does a Virtual Cooking Class Cost?

Prices for virtual cooking classes vary depending on what you’ll be making, who’s teaching your class and your group size but start at around £15 per person. Because it’s a virtual cooking class at home, at least you won’t have to fork out for taxis or expensive drinks at the bar afterwards!

We recommend wearing comfy clothes that you can easily move around in.
