Chef Valerio Castellano

"Quality and service....a world of difference"

Live Streaming Cooking Classes

I am now offering Live Streaming cooking classes. Learn how to cook step by step together with a professional Italian Chef having fun and sipping some good wine. I present these classes weekly via Zoom and I always have a special guest before the class starts.

Class fees

Individual Participant $ 24.00

Household ( family members) $ 32.00 ( 1 flat fee)

Friends together in one house $ 45.00 ( 1 flat fee)

Click on the PayPal or cc link below, fill in the total amount without the $ symbol ( 24-32-45....) and enter your information to pay for the class. When I receive the payment I will email you the recipes.  Please, before the class organize all the ingredients and quantities as per recipes received to have the class run smoothly. A couple hours before class time, I will email you the Zoom link. During the class, you will be able to ask questions via chat and I will answer live. I will also "go" in your kitchen to see what is going on or if you need help.

There is not credit or refund in case of cancellation.

The class fee you pay it is not transferable to another class.

Most of the recipes can be frozen for future use and the ingredients are easy to find. I also changed the recipes a little to help you limit your groceries shopping.

Do you want to make your own class? Private Live Streaming classes one on one, with a group of friends or neighbors  are available upon request.

Next Class: March 25th 2024

Explore your Inner Chef with the new cooking classes format. Recipes, reading, measuring are gone for now and we will go free exploring different combinations of ingredients, spices, flavors and creativity.

A lot of different layers of different flavors.
