About the Company
Fēst (www.festcooking.com) is an online, educational platform connecting home cooks to professional chefs, cooks, bartenders, sommeliers and expert home cooks to learn skills and recipes. Professional chefs share knowledge, verbal instruction, answer questions and provide feedback to home cooks through virtual one-on-one classes. This connection between a professional chef and a home cook has been previously limited to cookbooks, how-to tutorials and recipes, and meal subscription boxes.
Fēst launched at a moment in time where there is an abundant amount of cooking information available online and the demand for customized and on-demand services are becoming the norm. To date, there is little to no real-time connection between professional chefs and home cooks. We're excited to partner with expert chefs around the globe to share their knowledge, skill and passion to cooking curious people so they may cook with confidence at home.
