For the last 5+ years one of the items on my bucket list has been to take classes at our local culinary school. Not the one-off “Date Night Learn to Cook Italian” kind of special event but a real class where I learned about new techniques, skills, cooking methods, cuisines, etc. Alas, my schedule has been a little crazy and that just hasn’t happened quite yet.
This is why I was really excited to learn about a new online service that’s like Netflix for cooking school. Meet Salted! It’s an online cooking school that works with 100 chefs from around the country to offer cooking education via video.
I was invited to experience Salted and it’s the perfect solution to my class dilemma. I’m only just beginning my journey of exploring all it has to offer. It’s incredible!
I love all of the ways that you can browse recipes, especially by mood!
The “I’m feeling healthy” category yielded me all kinds of results from Coconut, Lime, Cilantro and Cauliflower Rice to How To Break Down and Work with Daikon Radishes. I really, really love that they have a mix of recipes and educational tutorials.
If you’re looking for a deeper dive, you can enroll in a course.
These are mostly themed around learning techniques, cuisines and holidays.
I’m hosting my family for Thanksgiving this year so me and the Thanksgiving Classics course are going to be spending at lot of quality time together! (I so needed it last year when I embarked on my first solo turkey roasting and carving journey!)
The cool thing is that when you complete a course, you receive a certificate. Salted tracks all of your completed courses, tutorials and saves things that you “favorite.”
One more feature that I think is really special is the Chef Hotline. If you have a question about anything from a specific recipe to a technique to ingredient substitutions, you can submit it to the culinary team and receive a response in under 30 minutes! (Their record is 2 minutes!) Do you know how many hours I’ve spent googling cooking questions!? (Or how many calls I’ve made to my dad…haha.) This is a great benefit to receive advice from a trained professional.
I think Salted is such a great service for novice and advanced chefs alike. The range of tutorials and courses you will find on their website is wonderful. You can keep it as simple as “how to use a meat thermometer” or “how to separate and egg” all the way to “how to break down an octopus” (I needed that a few months ago!) or “how to make cinnamon sugar brioche donuts.”
Learning to cook today can be expensive with cookbooks in the $30-$50 range, two-hour cooking classes running for $100 and culinary school is a major financial investment. Salted’s missions is to offer a $50,000 culinary education for just $9.99/month or $99/year.

I can’t wait to share all the things I’m going to make from Salted with you. Be sure to look out for my upcoming “Recent Eats” posts!
Have you ever taken a cooking class? Anyone else aspire to take a course at a local culinary school?
This post is sponsored by Salted but the excitement and opinions are my own. I love to cook and I love to learn!
