Take A Cooking Class With Michelin-Starred Chefs Starting At $30
From virtual tours of the Louvre to front row seats at Broadway shows, the impact of COVID-19 has brought a world of unique experiences to our homes. The latest is from Airbnb, now bringing world-renowned chefs into your kitchen with its new collection of Online Cooking Experiences.
For one to two hours, you will get cooking instructions from renowned chefs such as David Chang, Edward Lee, Claudette Zepada, and Rōze Traore. The best part of the experience? The chefs will be able to engage and chat with you in real-time, giving you a personalized experience as they glimpse into your home kitchen.
“As a chef we connect with our guests through our food, but we don’t often have the chance to share and explore the stories behind dishes with diners directly,” Chang said in a statement sent to Insider. “These Online Experiences give us the opportunity to do that, while paving the way for chefs from around the world to connect with guests virtually from afar.”
Chang’s one-hour, “One Pot Deliciousness” class is $100. Based on the description, class will begin with an informal introduction to see what everybody is working with in their own kitchens. Chang will then tell you about some of the one-pot recipes he has made during self-quarantine and why having a few essential tools is all you need for home cooking.
“I’ll walk you through my favorite recipe for chicken and rice donabe (clay pot). Learning to wash and cook rice without a rice cooker is a skill that everyone should know. We’ll walk through prep together, and, based on the ingredients you choose, we’ll discuss how to make it uniquely your own. If we make any mistakes along the way, don’t worry. We’ll figure it out together,” says Chang’s online class description.
All classes are available on a first come first served basis and will be capped at 10 attendees. Registration is now open and classes will run through the month of July.
