Schools around the country were forced to close during the COVID-19 pandemic, but it wasn’t just K-12 that was effected. Culinary schools were also forced to shutter their doors, but now, in order to adapt, culinary schools are offering online cooking classes.
Dana Bowen and Sara Kate Gillingham, co-owners of The Dynamite Shop, a culinary school for teenagers, spoke with Martha Stewart magazine and explained that they decided to shift their courses online, and they’ve been opened up for everyone. The school is specifically for younger chefs making it ideal if you’ve got kids at home. Courses are just $30 for a drop-in and last for an hour and a half. They’re held twice a day via Zoom at 4:00 and 6:00 Eastern Time.
It’s not just kids who can become chefs while social distancing. There are courses for adults as well.
The magazine also profiled culinary school 18 Reasons whose Executive Director Sarah Nelson said, “Our whole business model and philosophy was based on being together. We like to joke that we are a tech company now.” All of their courses are now held via Zoom, and you can check out their calendar to sign up for the classes that sound best to you.
If you want even more options, Martha Stewart magazine collected an entire list of online culinary classes you can take, and you can check them out to find the best option for you.
