With dine-in restaurants restricted, foodies across the region are tracking takeout options and digging into delivery. If the novelty of ordering out is wearing off, now might be the perfect time to check out some virtual cooking classes.
You can travel virtually into the kitchens of top chefs from Italy, Spain, Brazil, Thailand and more without changing out of your sweats, if you like—just don’t forget your apron. Once you select your cooking class date and time, a kitchen assistant will reach out to confirm and schedule a Kitchen Prep Session! Now might be the time to try out their "What's in Your Fridge?!" class.
