Considering my budget for groceries has grossly expanded, along with my waistline, during this Coronavirus lockdown, I thought it may be a good idea to get the kids in the kitchen to help prepare meals for the family. My daughter has taken baking classes in the past, and now that she’s a teenager, she’s a budding chef who is comfortable in the kitchen. My eight-year-old likes to help in the kitchen as well, but he hasn’t had any “formal” training or classes like his big sister, so I thought a virtual cooking class would be excellent for him to expand on his cooking and baking abilities.
Many of the virtual classes listed below are from local companies in the Austin area, but I’ve also listed some national options as well.
Join local chef Pascal’s private Facebook book group for live and pre-recorded baking and cooking lessons, happening Monday through Friday for kids of all ages.
Kids can learn to make everything from mini quiches to Texas beef and rice salad in this online live series. Classes are $10 per session and include a grocery list that will be sent to you via email once you’ve registered.
Follow along on their Facebook page for demos teaching you how to make everything from pizza to pretzels, cool cupcakes, and more.
Offering classes for adults and young chefs, these online cooking classes are $20 and teach baking and cooking skills. All online class registrants will receive an email containing directions on linking to the class through Zoom as well as a shopping list and menu packet ahead of time if kids would like to cook along.
Virtual cooking classes for the masses…..meant for kids, but everyone is welcome. Every Tuesday and Thursday at 12 p.m., using items that can found in almost every pantry.
