  1. I finally found a chef’s website that I actually want to receive emails from and I can’t find anything to sign up for them so hopefully this will work!

    1. Hi April! Yeah, our newsletter signup function is sort of buried in the bottom-right corner of the homepage. We’re working on it. Meanwhile, I’ve added you manually. Thanks for your interest!

  2. Here in Central California my husband & I are looking forward to cooking with you again Friday! We can’t keep up, but we try. It’s fun, and it’s like a date! Sometimes we go back later and watch it at our slower pace, once it’s recorded. Thank you for sharing your talents!

  3. I joined your online monthly service. I want to join the class this Friday. Will i get an invite for it or some kind of notification so I know where to go on Friday at 6 pm?

    1. Hi Cynthia! Thanks for joining. We highly recommend watching this video, which shows you how to enable notifications for the YouTube app.

      Anytime we post a members-only video, you should get a notification on your phone. Additionally, whenever we post to the members-only channel, you all get an email sent automatically.

      And don’t worry! We start the stream a little early in order to allow people to find their way to it.
