Class Experience

Think of these as science classes, but you get to eat your experiments. Chef JoAnna teaches in a way that makes you THINK. There's always a solid reason WHY and HOW something happens during cooking, and using a scientific approach, you'll always be able to reproduce your results.

Each learner will get the skills and knowledge to able to execute each recipe correctly, with a minimum of assistance. Learning with Chef JoAnna is DELICIOUS!
While this is a food-oriented class, the focus is on cooking techniques.
Nutrition and Diet are not part of this curriculum.
This class requires some preparation in advance: it is essential that the learner collects the ingredients and equipment listed in the mise-en-place before the class begins. Chef JoAnna is always available for questions, but not in the last 30 minutes before class. 

*** Chef will let you know if any food prep must be done in advance. 
*** D̳o̳n̳'̳t̳ c̳u̳t̳/̳c̳o̳o̳k̳ a̳n̳y̳t̳h̳i̳n̳g̳ until instructed!
 4 files available upon enrollment
If you want to cook along with the chef, you must purchase groceries in advance. Please allow adequate time to check your refrigerator and pantry, and to go to the store if needed. If a learner can't get the ingredients or equipment in time, they can still participate in everything in class besides the cooking part, and they make the recipe at a later time. (No transfers/credits/refunds allowed within 24 hrs of a scheduled class.) ******* IMPORTANT: Policy on Class Handouts: All printables will be posted to the "classroom" tab in PDF format. It's your responsibility to log on and print/write down this information, or have it available on another device. a) Thur/Fri/Sat classes -- posted SUNDAYS b) Sun/Mon/Tue/Wed classes -- posted THURSDAYS c) Recipes are uploaded AFTER each class. ******* Most foods should be available at most major grocery stores. I gently remind you that Michelangelo didn't learn to sculpt on Cararra marble, so I endorse purchasing inexpensive/store-brand/conventionally grown foods, which are perfectly adequate for cooking lessons. If you can't locate the exact food/tool, but you have something you think is close, message me! I'll help you make a substitution. (I have a heavy teaching schedule, so don't wait until the last minute! I can't promise I'll be available for 60 minutes before any class.) * Descriptions of Chef's preference for tools are included at You buy them anywhere you like, but for your convenience, they are available for purchase directly through Amazon.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Informal assessment. If a grade is required, please submit a form for me to sign/scan/upload. If the student needs to submit a written report to meet another class's requirements, I'm happy to help! Printable (PDF) Certificate of Completion upon request!
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
• Learners must be comfortable using a knife and a stove.
• Parental supervision is essential for safety.

ALLERGY STATEMENT: We use food in these classes. Lessons may call for items that include common allergens such as Dairy, Eggs, Fish, Shellfish, Tree Nuts, Peanuts, Wheat, and Soy. If the learner has dietary restrictions, please contact Chef JoAnna and she may be able to suggest ways to adapt the recipe, typically by substitution, or omission of the allergen. (Requires at least 48 hours' notice.) Not all recipes can be adapted. Chef JoAnna does not have the ability to ensure that the items you purchase will be completely free of allergens. It's up to the adults responsible for each learner to ensure that products brought into the learners' kitchens are allergen-free.
In order to fully participate, this class requires that each learner has the fresh foods called for in the recipes, as well as appropriate cooking equipment.  You can see my favorite equipment and tools listed on "Cuisine Connection", including photos and detailed descriptions. Refer to the "Materials" section below.

All "handouts" and worksheets needed will be provided, and delivered in the "CLASSROOM" tab of this online platform, via PDF format or as images. Please -- if you have questions, message me through Outschool at least 3 hrs before the class so that you will have time to make adjustments.
