Chefs and their staffs continue to feed us, even in these uncertain times. It’s their drive to keep the restaurant industry going and do what they do best, cook, serve and nourish. Although their restaurant doors are closed, their takeout and delivery service are not.
Joining them online with their own cocktail-making sessions are mixologists and bartenders. They’ll teach you how to create those drinks you love and ones you’ve been wanting to try.
Now, several have taken to their Instagram accounts to host online classes for their many followers and anyone who wants to make those dishes they love when they dine out.
Keep checking back for updates since we’ll be adding new online classes as we find them.
