Fable Kitchen virtual cooking classes provide students with virtual step-by-step guidance and support in creating delicious multi-course meals. It’s a great way for anyone to increase their confidence in the kitchen, enjoy high quality food, and learn unique tips, tricks and techniques along the way.

How do the classes work?

The class is hosted by chef Trevor Bird and is livestreamed over YouTube. Trevor will be engaging with the participants, offering support and answering questions in the accompanying chat box.

If you are participating with other households, we recommend hosting your own Zoom conference adjacent to the class to enjoy the event together.

When do the classes take place?

How long will the class take?

The classes will last about 2 hours depending on the pace that you are comfortable with.

What will we be making?

We will be making a three-course menu from local ingredients. We will be teaching tips and techniques usually learned in professional kitchens that you can eventually apply at your own dinner parties!

Can we accommodate dietary restrictions?

We make everything from scratch, so we are able to make adjustments along the way for special diets. Each order is prepared for households of two, so the whole order will have to accommodate the specified diet, even if it only affects one person.

Are there wine pairing options?

We have a curated selection of mostly special ordered wines that are not readily available in liquor stores, along with some house cocktails, local ciders, and kombucha available for purchase and to be delivered with the cooking ingredients.
