When organizing a cooking class, we suggest packing enough tools for the entire class. This means bringing six or seven bowls rather than one, ten or twelve knives rather than two, etc. The equipment you need will depend on the recipe you are making with the students. However, for all of the cooking demos, we also suggest bringing the following, must-have items:

  • Paper towels/clean dish towels
  • Paper plates/sample cups
  • Paper cups
  • Plastic disposable gloves
  • Hand sanitizer
