Sur La Table Sets Virtual Celebrity Cooking Classes

Sur La Table has tapped Martha Stewart and chef Emeril Lagasse to kick off its new series of online celebrity chef cooking classes next month.

Martha Stewart will host three classes to kick off the holiday season: a cake baking and decorating class to celebrate the release of her 97th cookbook, “Cake Perfection,” hosted on November 12; a Thanksgiving class featuring some of Martha’s family recipes, on November 19; and a special Christmas class on December 10.

Chef Emeril Lagasse will also host a holiday class on November 24, and Sur La Table will soon be announcing other top celebrity chefs to host online classes in the near future.

“As we head into the holiday season, I am thrilled to be hosting virtual cooking classes with Sur La Table,” said Stewart. “This year’s holiday celebrations will surely be different than in years past, but we have many ideas and ways to keep traditions relevant and our families happy and well fed. Our classes are designed to be fun, inspiring, and useful.”

“I have always been a huge fan of Sur La Table and I am really excited to reconnect with the Sur la Table audience on one of my favorite topics, holiday recipes. I will be sharing some of my personal family favorites for the holiday season,” said Lagasse. “Cooking with family is so important to me and I encourage families who live apart to share in this experience.”

Sur La Table’s online cooking classes are designed to give home cooks and food lovers a fun and easy way to get hands-on culinary experience, from cooking and baking, to mixology. With this digital extension, family and friends can now gather online to cook and be together while still apart.
