Virtual Cooking Class. Valentine’s Day | I EAT Food Tours
Valentine’s Day is coming. Celebrate your love with a special Virtual Cooking Class with Chef Abram, live from Italy!
VIRTUAL COOKING CLASSES: FUN AND DELICIOUS VALENTINE’S GIFT IDEAS!
February has almost came and it’s gonna be all about hearts, chocolate treats and special dinners, in the tradition of the month of love.
When we think of the most romantic time of the year we usually focus on lovers and on Valentine’s day.
But you know something? We believe Valentine’s is not just for couples. It’s about LOVE, in the widest sense of the term. Which means love for the family, for our friends, our colleagues… for ourselves, too. ‘Course!
As every year, we are looking forward to hosting you on a special virtual cooking class and to cooking up some magic together through an epic, deliciously gorgeous and 100% infused with love virtual event. Live from the country of Amore: Italy!
Since we first launched our virtual cooking classes we have been lucky enough to meet up with amazing people and to celebrate many important festivities with awesome food lovers from across the world.
It all began in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, when we all were forced to don’t give up on fun, connections and celebrations. On the contrary, that was the time where we needed to express our love the most. And we did it, each of us in his own very way.
As for myself and chef Abram, as professionals in the food, travel and hospitality field we found out how cooking together, although virtually, was healing, in some way, for both parties.
Also, we discovered that sharing each others’ kitchens was very powerful; it helped to create an immediate sense of confidence and enhanced the sense of bonding. Of course, it was always so so fun and educational, too.
To sum up: we were thrilled to have found the perfect formula to keep on sharing our message of significant connections through food, which has always been the primary mission of our food experiences and food tours in Torino – that we had been forced to pause at that time.
Among the best moments we shared with families living thousand miles away, there are legendary virtual Christmas Parties, a very special New Years Eve Dinner (yes, we raised a glass to 2021 with a family from Switzerland!) many super Romantic Anniversaries, Crazy Fun Birthday Celebrations… and last but not the least, a few really emotional Valentine’s Cooking Classes!
In most cases we have been contacted by someone who wanted to ‘wow’ his family, love, friends…with a surprise tasty gift.
We can tell you from experience that you never go wrong when you go through food, and perhaps it has always been like this. As a matter of fact, food related gifts are the most appreciated these days, especially when they are linked to an experience – term that is very overused, I know, but that makes the idea of high impact, significant and educational activities. The funnier (and delicious) the better.
Well, now pandemic is finally over and we still keep on receiving requests for virtual cooking gatherings. Our main audience comes from the States and it is not unusual that your parents, siblings, friends are living very far from you there.
Whether you are looking to celebrate a special Valentine’s day or to throw an epic online party, Chef Abram is super ready to give you an EXTRAordinary experience. Promise!
Let’s now find out our best sellers menus – Valentine’s Edition 🙂
