I received my Virgin Experience Gifts Voucher for the The Chef & The Dish Cooking Class eGift Card.. what's next?

What types of classes are available?

There is a wide variety of classes available that will teach you to make the most iconic dishes from around the world. Learn to make Paella with a chef from Spain, Mosaic Sushi Rolls with a chef from Japan, Ragu Pasta with a chef from Italy and so much more! With over 30 classes to choose from, there's a perfect class for every taste and skill level!

Is this class appropriate for beginners?

Absolutely. There are classes for cooks of all levels. As long as you are willing to learn, your chef will be willing to walk you through it step by step! These classes are private video sessions in the comfort of your own home so don't be embarrassed to ask questions!

How long do the classes usually last?

Since this is a 1-1 cooking experience between you and your chef, each cooking class is entirely unique. However, classes typically last from 2-3 hours. 

Do I need special video equipment?

No - As long as you have a device that enables video calling and an internet connection... you are good to go! Prior to every class, a Kitchen Assistant will schedule a prep session with you during which you will check over your video equipment and make sure you are ready for your class.

Will I need any special kitchen equipment?

Typically, no. Each chef works hard to ensure that their class can be held using standard kitchen equipment. However if special tools are required, it will be noted in the information for that class on the Chef & The Dish website. In many cases, the chef can tailor the recipe to work with what you have if you are not willing to purchase the item.

Are groceries included?

No, groceries are not included. You will be provided a shopping list prior to your class and a Kitchen Assistant will be available to answer any questions you might have. Groceries cost about $50 on average, but can vary depending on the class chosen.
