In my ongoing effort to become a better home cook, every Sunday I make myself learn a new recipe. Last week it was a beet salad with bleu cheese buttermilk dressing and toasted pecans, the week before that it was fingerling potatoes with a homemade lemon vinaigrette. I know, they’re simple executions, but my goal is to perfect them in order to expand my repertoire. The biggest challenge to my grand plan, however, is the time it takes to thoughtfully read through a recipe to wrap my brain around all the steps. This is probably why, covered in beet juice and buttermilk, I often find myself frantically trying to elbow-type into Google cooking tips.
It would be so much easier if I had an on-call chef I could ask my questions. Local Chef Sarah Adams (of Bad Bitches fame) must appreciate my frustration because on Thursday she’s launching a new virtual cooking class.
On Oct. 19 at 7 p.m., Adams will host a live cooking class online. For $25, you can login and follow along as you and Adams together prepare a pan roasted chicken grain bowl.
Adams said the idea sprung from her time working alongside Cori Banyon at the Harbor Entrepreneur Center. Banyon has just launched a startup called AndMe TV. Essentially, it’s a livestreamed cooking class.

The class is designed to take about an hour and the cost is $25 to login. In advance of starting, online Adams has explained all the ingredients, tools, and necessary items needed to complete the recipe.
“We are affectionally calling our approach a ‘cook along,'” says Adams.
