What is the difference with Live Zoom classes?

The course is composed of short and focused HD videos on each component of the recipes, pictures, schema, download the recipe and the market list, comment, ask questions, watch as many time as you want... at your own pace! Better quality broadcast than on zoom (don’t get me wrong I still love the Live events and I will still do a few, but for many purposes non live sessions are better sometimes), access from a browser on any platforms like phone, tablets… don’t need any apps, easy and clear content, lifetime access and possible to download the recipe, market list (list of supplies to make your grocery, calculated to do the amount I mentioned (yield))

As the videos are focused on one topic or sub part of a recipe, it makes it easier to replay

What is a market list?

Market list is the list of supplies, to help to make your grocery shopping, I consolidate all the amounts of the ingredients for you, to make easier purchase.
