The Best Online Cooking Classes

I don’t know about where you live, but where I am in New Hampshire, it seems that there will be another lockdown. For a foodie, this means less time to experience a restaurant culture and more take out.

I love supporting local restaurants and enjoying the food everyone has to offer, but to be honest, I live in a small town. It is unlike New York or San Francisco, with thousands of restaurants to try. There is only a handful, and I love them all but have tried almost all of them.

I have been coming up with a list of things to do during our next round of lockdowns, and someone told me about online cooking classes. Now, up until recently, I wasn’t the one cooking in the kitchen. My fiance loves to cook, and I let him do his thing in the kitchen. Being a freelance writer has a lot of perks, and I finally started cooking.

I am not the best cook, but I have found that I do actually enjoy cooking. I like finding a recipe, trying it, and improving on it. So, I am excited to say that I have signed up for cooking classes to try during the lockdown.

Online Cooking Classes To Sign Up For Now

Though I have only tried one of these, I am determined to try all of them through the next few months. Here are the best ones you should try. If you want to make it fun, create a group on zoom and do it with your best friends!

Rouxbe

The best thing about this is it starts with a 30-day free trial. After that, you pay $9.99 a month and have access to free recipes and courses. It will help you feel like you know what you’re doing in the kitchen and really teach you the skills you need to be successful.

The best features include:

  • 75 lessons
  • 100’s or more recipes
  • Instructor Support
  • Instructor Grading
  • Certificate Completion

Now, if you’re like me, you’re in it for the food and learning how to create that restaurant experience on your own. This is one of the best ones if you want to make it feel more professional. I could take or leave the certificate, but for me, that really isn’t the point.

Online Cooking Classes

Gordon Ramsay Masterclass

This is a class I have meant to try because I LOVE Gordon Ramsay. He is funny, harsh, and knows what he’s doing. He has created a whole industry based on his love for good food. During our next lockdown, this is what I will be taking first and foremost. This class is $15 a month billed annually. On top of this class, you can get hundreds of other courses too.

The best features include:

  • 15 Lessons
  • Short Lessons
  • PDF Workbooks
  • Easy To Follow

Gordon Ramsay has put together 13 dishes that use everyday ingredients to completely revamp them. I am so excited to try this class out and see if I can wow my fiance with some new meals inspired by these classes.

CozyMeal Dependent On Recipe

CozyMeals is not like the other options. There is not one price to join the community. Instead, you are paying for one class, usually between $29-$70 per dish. This money goes to support the chef who made the video. It is a fun and interactive program that can teach you how to make thousands of dishes from home.

Each class will show the class’s price, the day it is being hosted, and all of the ingredients and kitchen devices you need. I have tried one course from here and have absolutely loved it.

The best features include:

  • No Monthly Subscription
  • A Wide Variety Of Recipes
  • Easy Videos To Join
  • Interactive

This is an excellent option if you miss talking to other people and want to be interactive with a group without worrying about being around others. This is a fun way to meet new people, cook and get that cooking class feeling.

America’s Test Kitchen Online Cooking School

If you know how to cook and you’re looking to build your skills, this is the website for you. I am excited to try this one because it will help me understand how to take what I have to the next level. It teaches what you need to do by award-winning chefs in a step-by-step manner.

I am looking forward to trying this with my friends across the country. Using this website and creating zoom meetings with my dearest friends on the west coast sounds like a super fun idea.

The best features include:

  • Recipes Ranked From Easy To Difficult
  • Different Categories Of Recipes
  • A Detailed List Of Ingredients

This class seems like the perfect option if you want to start from the easiest and go all the way to more challenging recipes. As you gain more practice, things will become more comfortable and less confusing. The best thing about this website is there is a two week free trial period. After that, it is $20 per month.

What Will You Try This Lockdown?

I know we all thought life would go back to normal after our last quarantine, but that is not the case. We have to stay at home and help our at-risk people remain healthy and alive. I know it isn’t fun, I know we hated it, but it is our responsibility. There are fun ways to get that restaurant experience at home, and the best part is you can create it. There is no better time to learn some new skills than during lockdown.
