Who can use some good news?!
On Thursday, July 30, Rachael is launching Rachael Ray’s Yum-o!® Cooking Camp — a FREE 16-part live series of online cooking classes for kids and adults alike.
During the interactive experience, Rach — along with other chefs, celebrities and lifestyle personalities — will teach simple recipes, skills and techniques.
The online cooking classes start July 30 with Rach's Individual Barbecue Chicken "Pizzas." Yum-o!
"The first discipline I learned that helped improve my self-esteem, excite all of my senses and fuel my creativity was and still remains cooking," Rach says. "So, I am excited to light some fires in the next few weeks of summer with our virtual cooking camp while staying in and being safe!"
RACHAEL’S ONLINE SUMMER COOKING CLASS DETAILS
WHAT: Live online cooking classes teaching recipes that are easy enough for kids 8 to 15 to follow along to support families whose camps and child care centers are closed this summer.
WHERE: Wherever you are, via Zoom! Register here to reserve your virtual seat before spots fill up.
WHEN: Thursday, July 30 – Friday, August 14; Daily at 2pm EST/11am PST for approximately 45 minutes.
