What Are Zoom Cooking Classes?

Zoom cooking classes are live, interactive cooking classes hosted over Zoom, a video conferencing software. You can take a cooking class on Cozymeal in the comfort of your kitchen through an interactive, live-streaming virtual platform taught by a five-star chef.

The Benefits of Live Online Cooking Classes

Live, online cooking classes incorporate all the benefits of a traditional cooking class from the comfort of your home kitchen. Because the cooking classes are hosted live over video conference, you can ask the chef questions, show the chef how your dish is coming along and even interact with other participants. 

You’ll find your Zoom cooking class is just as engaging as a traditional class. Because the online cooking classes are so interactive, you could even book your class with friends or coworkers for a much-needed team building activity or private event. 

Another reason to book an online class? You can book experiences for different cuisines no matter where you live. Online cooking classes allow you to learn from chefs around the nation, rather than just those available in your city.
