Virtual cooking classes bring professional chef into your kitchen
EDMONTON -- You can't go out to eat right now, but you can still have restaurant-quality food at home.
Edmonton restaurant MilkCrate is delivering a professional chef into your kitchen – from a safe distance.
"It's been stressful but times like this call for creative solutions," Brochu said.
Chef Steven Brochu is hosting virtual cooking classes.
"I will go and pick up all of the ingredients, drop off the ingredients at their house, I'll run home to my place and we will set up a video call," Brochu explained on CTV Morning Live Edmonton. "We'll work through the recipe together."
Requests so far include vegetarian pesto pasta, Beef Wellington and sourdough bread.
Brochu has done one-on-one classes and groups. The cost ranges between $40 to $80 dollars an hour per kitchen.
MilkCrate is also offering takeout and delivery, one of many restaurants having to pivot hard to stay in business during the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We're just trying to do what we can to keep our small staff on. It's different and we're looking forward to what the world looks like after this as well," Brochu said. "Support us if you can, but also stay safe."
