Airbnb, one of the largest travel community platforms, has started offering online cooking classes taught by first-class chefs.

A precious chance to learn cooking from a first-class chef at home

You may easily take tutorials from a professional chef at home with online cooking videos produced by Airbnb. There are many kinds of lectures ranging from a variety of topics such as how to select ingredients, how to flavor the meal to make it more delicious, and ideas for special recipes. It is recommended not only for people who just started cooking but also for people who want to brush up on their cooking skills, especially for people who are tired of their usual recipes.

The ingredients used are things that can be purchased easily. You will learn how to replicate the professional taste. Since you can communicate with the chef, you can directly ask questions if there’s something you don’t understand.

Also, with the online cooking classes of Airbnb, families that live far away can gather online and cook together. Plan for a weekend or holiday together with the family for more fun.
