Endemol Shine North America’s culinary competition series MasterChef has launched a series of digital cooking classes with lessons taught by former winners.
Cooking with MasterChef (pictured) will provide users with two online experiences that include Homestyle Favorites and Restaurant Results that will be team-taught by season four winner Luca Manfé and season six winner Claudia Sandoval, as well as season seven winner Shaun O’Neale.
The Homestyle Favorites course will look to elevate the skills of all home chefs, while also acquiring such key techniques as basic knife skills.
Restaurant Results, meanwhile,will empower home cooks to create restaurant-worthy versions of the finale dishes that helped each MasterChef winner claim their respective title. The course will also allow participants to learn insider techniques for preparation and plating.
Each class includes detailed instruction and step-by-step demonstrations and complete recipes that will help home cooks master new techniques, experiment with fresh ingredients and create innovative dishes.
Courses cost US$39.99 and include lifetime access to two-plus hours of video content, downloadable course materials and direct interaction with instructors and other home cooks through a digital message board.
The Cooking with MasterChef series is produced by and will be made available via online educational platform Craftsy, in partnership with Endemol Shine North America.
“We couldn’t be more proud that everyone can now learn how to cook like a MasterChef at home,” said Tamaya Petteway, SVP of brand and licensing partnerships at Endemol Shine North America, in a statement. “Craftsy is the perfect fit for MasterChef‘s debut online classes, since just like many Craftsy users, the MasterChef instructors started as home cooks.”
