VIRTUAL CLASS INFORMATION

CLASS DESCRIPTION
Join our virtual class for a live demonstration featuring three recipes with instruction by one of our top Sweet Basil Cooking School chefs. The chef will lead you through the entire cooking process. Participate by making one or all the recipes along with the chef in the comfort of your own kitchen or just watch and make the recipes later. Simply print out the shopping list and suggested equipment information we provide you. It’s that simple!
GETTING READY
Enroll either online or by calling our store at (480) 596-5628. Two days before class you will receive recipes, a shopping list for ingredients and an equipment list that you can print out at home. You’ll also receive a special zoom link that will allow you to enter the class.
JOINING THE CLASS
Prior to class, make sure to download the Zoom app on the device you are going to use for viewing the class.

Log into class 5 to 10 minutes before the start time. Simply click on the Zoom link that was emailed to you to “sign in.”

You will be placed in a virtual “waiting room.” As the class time approaches, you will be let into the class by the chef or Sweet Basil Gourmet Cooking School class moderator.

SOME ZOOM TIPS
You will be muted when you enter the class. We ask that you stay muted so that we don’t have people trying to talk over each other.

We also ask that you turn off your video once you enter the class. If everyone has their video on, our class video may appear grainy.

QUESTIONS DURING CLASS
Turn on your chat feature on the Zoom application. You can ask questions to the chef instructor by typing your question into the chat feature. Throughout the class the moderator will direct your questions to the chef. If the chef is not able to address all the questions, there will be an allotment of time after class to address them.
AFTER THE CLASS
After class, we will ask you to complete a comment card for your thoughts about the class. We value your feedback and want to know what you enjoyed along with any suggestions you might have.

Hands-On Class Information

Join us in our comfortable modern kitchen for lots of exciting classes. For our in house classes, at this time and for everyone’s safety, we require students to provide their own masks and wear them during class. Hands-on classes begin with a lecture about the recipes being prepared. Students are invited into the kitchen (gloves will be provided) to choose the recipes they want to prepare. Preparation and cooking take place until the recipes are completed. Students are then served a meal of the foods prepared. The instructor will review the recipes with the group with input from each team.

Demonstration classes will require masks to be provided by the student and worn during class. We will require students to social distance in our seating area. We are limiting our class size to 10 people in order to maintain correct social distancing.
