St. Paddy’s Virtual Cooking Class
March 20 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Make a little luck and a delicious 3-course dinner at our St. Paddy’s Virtual Cooking Class live on Zoom, sure to be a shamrockin’ good time!
St. Paddy’s Cooking Class Menu
- Cheddar ale bread
- Beef stout stew
- Bailey’s bread pudding with whiskey butter sauce
Recipes will feature beer from the Cary Ale House, our favorite place to grab a pint! Locals can pick up crowlers to-go, and out-of-towners can substitute beers closer to home.
How it Works:
Registration opens March 1 and closes March 18 to give you time to shop and prep. Once you register, we’ll send you a list of required ingredients and equipment – all of which can be easily sourced from your home kitchen or local market. We’ll also share instructions for setting up your station and any prep to have done before class starts, along with a Zoom link to join us live for the event so you can beam into our virtual kitchen studio from wherever you are.
During the class, we’ll lead everyone through quick introductions and get to work cooking and plating a delicious, restaurant-quality dinner. Guests will follow along while the chef demos techniques and provides step-by-step cooking instruction live on-screen. You’ll also get real-time feedback on your culinary creations and personal assistance whenever needed.
What You’ll Need
- A computer and camera that can be stationed where you’ll be cooking
- An internet connection and free Zoom account
- Required ingredients and basic cooking equipment
- A sense of humor and enthusiasm for learning
- An adult beverage of your choice (if you indulge) – this is every chef’s secret to good cooking!
What You’ll Learn
- Professional chef techniques for preparing and plating a meal
- Steps for creating specialty sauces and seasoning
- A chef’s recipe and the skills to recreate it any time
- Strategies for plating and garnishing like a pro
Cost & Requirements
- $30.00 per screen for an interactive, engaging, virtual cooking class experience with personalized instruction and feedback, along with the chance to connect socially with other aspiring cooks.
- We recommend one screen for every pair but it’s up to you how many cooks you want in your kitchen. In our experience, it’s helpful to have a separate computer set-up and logged-in to the virtual class at every cooking station, with no more than 1-2 people at a station, so everyone can follow along with the chef live on-screen. We also suggest limiting to one source of audio in the room to avoid that annoying echo effect.
- Participants will also need to purchase required ingredients in advance of class – all of which can be sourced at your local market – and provide basic household cooking equipment.
