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.
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.
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.
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.
