From perfecting pasta prowess to teaching aspiring young cooks how to create healthy meals, these online courses are a must for Westchester’s talented home chefs.

With social distancing guidelines still firmly in place, most of us are continuing to spend added hours in the kitchen, stirring the pots and attempting the role of home chef extraordinaire. While recipe searching online may work for some, the rest of us need actual, expert instruction to really up our at-home cooking game, and that is where virtual classes come into play. Many are based right here in Westchester and offer tips and tricks for everything from simple daily meal prep to over-the-top holiday feasts.

So, tighten up your apron and check out these online cooking (and bartending!) classes sure to make you a better quarantine cook.
