Learn to cook by yourself or with a group of friends from the comfort of your own kitchen. This class makes learning the art of Chinese cooking fun and easy, no matter your culinary experience! FAQs Q: I can watch how-to videos free online. Why would I pay for this class? A: These high quality ad free videos are clear, simple, and step-by-step instructions. Unlike other online videos, they are directly connected to the contents of Chris Toy's cookbook, which includes additional tips, substitution suggestions, troubleshooting, and more. Q: How long and how often can I use the videos? A: After you register and pay for the class, you can watch them repeatedly once you receive the link to the information. There will be enough material in the class for 1-2 weeks taking into account reading through the recipes, watching the videos, and shopping for ingredients. Q: How do I get the cookbook? A: Once you register, you can pick it up at a central location. If you are unable to pick it up, we can arrange to mail it to you prior to the beginning of the class. Q: How will Chris be able to help me? A: After you register for the class, you will have Chris Toy's email address and his mobile phone number. You can email, call, or text him at any time. If you call and he does not answer just leave a text with your question and he will get back to you as soon as possible. Q: Why isn't this class using Zoom or some other way to meet up online? A: Our experience tells us that unless everyone has strong and reliable high-speed internet connections are unreliable, which is very frustrating and stressful. Using videos and the book, along with personalized support has been more effective for most students.
