Virtual Cooking Classes

Virtual cooking classes are an excellent remote team-building experience where attendees cook along with Jesse Lane Lee. Food is really just an excuse to engage. Jesse Lane has been teaching these classes since the start of the pandemic and is able to create an experience that fosters engagement with all attendees. 

Employees are bored at home and looking to learn a new skill. They are also craving personal connection now more than ever. Virtual cooking classes are a fun way to bring people together from the comfort of their own kitchens to connect over yummy food.

Virtual Cooking Classes include:

  • A 1-hour cooking class where participants can ask questions about cooking techniques, substitutes, and equipment alternatives
  • Beautiful pdf of the recipes
  • Email access to Jesse Lane before the class to discuss substitutes and dietary concerns
  • Class replay for those who miss the class
