How do I make a booking?

Booking a class is very simple:


  • First choose the type of class you would like to take from the cooking classes page here, then the number of people.

  • Add the class to the shopping cart, then add a note of the date and time you would like the class to take place in the checkout. (You can also email to check availability) 

  • Once you have paid for the booking you will receive the list of ingredients to buy for your class by email, along with a link to download the app.

  • I will then contact you to confirm your date, and on the day we go live and cook together!

What do I need to prepare?

Once you have made your booking: 

  • You will receive a list of the necessary ingredients to purchase for the class you have chosen, together with some useful links for online shops to get things from if you can't find something locally.

  • Along with this will be a list of basic equipment you will need to cook the dishes (you will most likely have these already in your kitchen). 

  • You need a decent internet connection, and a phone, tablet, or laptop to stream the video.

  • Some classes require a little preparation beforehand, such as the sushi class, but most classes will start everything from scratch during the session, and I will guide through all the steps.

  • Then we go live and cook!

How long is the class?

All classes are approximately 2 hours from start to finish, but please allow 30 minutes extra when booking.


NOTE: The only exceptions are the bread class, and handmade chocolates class, which are divided into two 1 hour sessions with a 45 minute break in the middle. The classes themselves are still 2 hours, but a gap in the middle is necessary so the bread dough has time to rise, or the chocolates need to set. So please allow 3 hours for these two classes.

How much does it cost?

The price of the class depends on how many people you are in the video. The more you are, the cheaper the price per person. The price ranges from 99€ (1 person) down to 39€ (10 or more people).

NOTE: You can be up to 4 people in one video / location. If you are more than 4 people you must set up in two or more videos / locations to host the class. This is simply because when there are too many people on the same camera, there are distractions or confusion when everyone is talking at the same time, and I won't be able to give you the best experience.


With multiple cameras it's easy for me to talk to you all and see you cooking. There is no limit to how many locations / videos you use for the classes. For example if you are a couple in New York wanting to have a class together with your friends in Paris and London, then you can have a good time!

Can I change the class after I book?

You can change the type of class after you book up to 3 days before the date of you booking. Bear in mind you need to give yourself enough time to get all the ingredients.

If you need to change the date or cancel the class, you can also do so with 3 days notice.
