New York, NY, August 17, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Today, the cooking school experience comes home with ChefsLine, a company at the forefront of bringing home cooks together with top chefs through the use of interactive technologies.
The ChefsLine Cooking School delivers 30 and 60 minute, high-impact cooking lessons by phone and video chat. The company's instructors have worked with ChefsLine to revamp their most popular and trendy classes with a focus on delivering step-by-step technique instruction in those areas where home cooks tend to falter at home. The ChefsLine Cooking School features a broad array of cooking lessons, customized for every student according to their interests and level of experience. Cooking classes include: Classic French Bistro Cooking, Homemade Pizza: Rustic, Authentic, and Easy, and Be Your Own Personal Chef. Most classes cost just $15.95 and the school provides a shopping list, menu, and recipes so students cook live with their instructor.
The Cooking School's instructors are some of the nation's most popular and successful cooking teachers who welcome the opportunity to extend their student relationships into the home kitchen. "It's one thing to take a cooking class with a group in a commercial kitchen, and another thing altogether to try and make those dishes by yourself at home. With ChefsLine, I can teach students from other parts of the country and have the thrill of knowing that their cooking lesson is going to turn into a great meal for their family that night." says ChefsLine Chef Kevin Weeks, an instructor based in Knoxville, TN.
ChefsLine's flagship service, the culinary hotline, has delivered on-demand emergency cooking help to more than 2,000 home cooks since its launch last year. "We speak everyday to real home cooks who are struggling with everything from reading a recipe, to what to prepare for dinner with ingredients on hand, to dishes that are too salty or just not right." says Jennifer Beisser, CEO. "With our School, we can now proactively teach practical, fundamental cooking techniques we know home cooks need to be successful."
Unlike traditional in-person classes where students must conform to the schools's schedule, ChefsLine is flexible. The company offers classes round the clock and students use the website's (www.ChefsLine.com/the_cooking_school.php) online booking tool to select a time that works for them. Jennifer says, "Now everyone can get systematic cooking training and learn on their own schedule, at home, and complete a lesson in just thirty minutes."
ChefsLine's Cooking School students also have access to an entire program of ongoing support and cooking resources through ChefsLine. ChefsLine gives on-demand, expert help by phone and online when members are shopping, planning a meal, or in the midst of a cooking crisis and need quick, easy solutions. ChefsLine.com is a popular website featuring exclusive chef recipes, menus, and cooking podcasts. The website is also a portal to other interactive tools connecting home cooks to great chefs including LiveChef Chat and Click to Call a Chef. ChefsLine members form close bonds with the company's twenty five chef consultants, who are often touted as "the personal trainers of the home kitchen." ChefsLine has been featured on the CBS Early Show, Wall Street Journal, and in numerous lifestyle and food publications. The Cooking School's Live Broadcast classes will a launch in October and feature celebrity chefs who demonstrate their dishes live, over the Internet, while home cooks cook along and ask questions via online chat and by phone.
