Cooking Lessons FAQ

Can you take cooking classes online?

Absolutely! Virtually anyone can take cooking classes online. The only thing you need is an internet connection and a computer or mobile device in order to take advantage of interactive sessions with professional chefs. Of course, access to a kitchen is also helpful if you’re interested in participating in an online cooking school.

The internet offers teaching opportunities to almost anyone who has a desire to learn. In fact, the internet might be the ideal way to teach cooking classes. Local favorites can be taught by those who have a cultural connection to the cuisine to anyone in any part of the world. Rather than have the teacher travel to multiple locations or the students travel to the teacher, the details of food preparation can be conveyed—in detail—online.

How do online cooking classes work?

The chef or teacher can provide what appears to be one-on-one instruction to individuals who tune in to the cooking class. If the class is recorded, the student can pause and rewind to ensure they understand the teacher’s instructions.

While in-person cooking classes offer advantages, such as asking the instructor questions directly and experiencing the aroma of the teacher’s example firsthand, online cooking classes offer potentially more variety. Students learning online can take multiple classes and experience cuisine from multiple cultures, all from the comfort of their own home. In short, everything a student can glean from in-person instruction can easily be conveyed via online classes.

How much is a virtual cooking class?

The cost of cooking classes can vary, depending on the cuisine, the experience of the teacher, and the detail of the instruction. For those looking to take cooking classes online, the cost can range from $25 to $100 per hour. Most students can expect to pay, on average, between $40 and $50 per hour for a capable cooking instructor offering classes online.

How do I find the best online cooking class?

Finding the right cooking class featuring a capable teacher for the cuisine you’re interested in requires a little research. One can easily search online for cooking classes, but it may be difficult to find the right one at the right price point simply by doing a Google search.

An ideal way to search for the best cooking class for the cuisine you desire is to search on a platform such as Upwork.
