Perfect for employee wellness programs, distant family members, book clubs, or patients/clients who want to learn how to follow dietary recommendations.

1

Choose your class theme, and discuss preferences, skill levels, and expectations.

2

Pick a date and time. I'll send out an email with all the details and class materials.

3

Shop and prepare ingredients then join online and cook along then eat what you make!

Join the others who have booked private classes and see for yourself...

"We hosted a private cooking class for our company. Everyone was raving about it the next day. Chef Linda was easy to work with in scheduling the event, picking out our menu, and letting us know how to prepare in advance. She was also patient with less experienced cooks in our group. We can't wait to take another class!"

Details

Gather a group of friends, family members, or employees. Choose from a variety of class themes or customize your menu to meet your goals. We'll talk about what kinds of foods you like, what your skill level in the kitchen is, what tools you have, and address any allergies. Then you'll pay and book your class and I'll provide you with the recipes, shopping list, and link to the class. We'll cook as a group with an opportunity to stop and ask questions. At the end of class, everyone will enjoy a delicious, nutritious meal you made together.

Pricing for Private Classes

Private classes start at $375 and include up to 8 locations/devices. Invite additional friends, family, or colleagues for an additional $25/device (up to 15 people). Contact me for pricing for individual or larger/corporate groups.

What's on the Menu?

Feel like getting away? Grab your passport and experience the flavorful cuisines from places like Morocco, Ethiopia, Lebanon, or the Mediterranean right from your own kitchen. Looking to level-up your kitchen skills? Why not take a techniques class like knife skills, handmade pasta workshop, sushi-making, or Vegan 101? And if you've got patients who are looking to incorporate healthy recommendations, group classes are a wonderful way for them to learn by doing.

The Nitty-Gritty

  • Classes are virtual (unless otherwise arranged).

  • You and your group will cook in your own kitchens where you're comfortable.

  • Classes run for roughly 90 minutes, depending on the menu.

  • Menus can be designed around a complete meal, specific ingredients, or techniques.

  • We'll cook together, step-by-step, and you can ask questions along the way.

  • The printable grocery list, shopping guide, and recipes will be sent in advance.

  • Most dietary restrictions can be accommodated (gluten-free, soy-free, allergies, etc.) in private classes.

Let's talk about booking a class!
