When the restaurant industry had to shut its doors, many people took to the kitchen. And with many restrictions still in place, you might be looking for ways to change up the daily cooking routine. Well, why not get the guidance of Michelin-rated chefs? That’s precisely what Delicious Experiences—the first online marketplace for private virtual workshops with award-winning culinary experts from across the globe—wants to do.
The unique concept was created by Israel-based couple Inbal Baum and Tal Ater who used their experience in both the culinary and tech worlds to create the concept for the business. Incredibly, they built it amid a pandemic to support the hospitality industry and bring people together through cooking. To do that, they pulled together a roster of Michelin star recipients, James Beard Award winners, award-winning sommeliers and mixologists, New York Times bestselling cookbook authors, and others. Each class is customizable and live, so you get real-time feedback and guidance.
Some workshops include The Joy of Wine Tasting and Pairing with Michelin Star restaurant owner and sommelier Etheliya Hananova, Nate Appleman, the former culinary director for Chipotle leads a Badass Burgers class. And Florence’s top culinary academy experts, Matteo Giuliani, Max Amini, and Stefano Acciai, will teach you how to make fresh pasta.
“Our goal for Delicious Experiences is to offer one-of-a-kind ways to bring people together that fill hearts and bellies, spark minds and nourish souls,” said Baum in a statement. “We look forward to bringing joyful and engaging experiences that will connect people across the world.”
Workshops range in price from $125 to $1,250 and can be done for one person or a group. The company has already done custom corporate event workshops with brands like Google, Waze, Whole Foods and Ernst & Young. Many of the workshops are offered as a donation where all proceeds are given to a charity.
