Zoom Virtual Classes

We’ve discovered cooking along in real time via Zoom is fun! You’re still engaged with the chef and since you get a video of the class, you can re-watch it as often as you like. The beauty of Zoom is you can join us from anywhere.

Five days before class, you’ll receive an email with the Zoom link and the class packet with the recipes, shopping and equipment lists, so you’ll be ready to get cooking. Please know, depending on the recipe, some steps may need to be prepared ahead before the class.

You can join from your phone, laptop, desktop or tablet. We recommend having a hands-free device so you can cook along.

The menus have been created to use pots, pans and utensils found in most home kitchens. The chef is cooking with you, guiding you through every step, giving you personalized attention. Plus, we’ll make sure the chef answers all your questions.

Kids & Teen Classes

Teaching kids and teens to cook helps inspire confident and creative cooks, healthier meals, and fun in the kitchen.

Classes involve hands-on learning about ingredients, organizing a kitchen, personal hygiene and food safety, and cooking and baking techniques.

They’ll learn where food comes from and how to create healthy, nutritious meals that are also delicious.

Junior Chefs ages 7-12 are introduced to basic kitchen skills – measuring, mixing, kneading, working cleanly and safely in the kitchen – and new foods.

Teen Chefs ages 13-17 are guided in expanding their kitchen skills; they’ll explore exotic ingredients and learn simple yet sophisticated menus they’ll enjoy preparing at home.

Classes vary in price, depending on the menu ingredients, and start at $69.00 per person.

Special Events: Private Parties, Kids/Teen Parties, Corporate Events

Dream it and we’ll help you plan an unforgettable event! Levels of participation: Chef demonstrations, hands-on cooking, or a combination of both.

You’ll have a choice of themed events and menus or a special menu tailored to your needs, which includes a full meal or choice of another course. Guests begin their three-hour adventure in cooking with appetizers, followed by a cooking or baking class and dining on the meal they helped prepare. We’ll provide our complete support, from beginning to end, and recipes from your menu.

Our chefs will work alongside your guests throughout the event to ensure they’re at ease in the kitchen and excited to try what they’ve learned. Reluctant cooks will be encouraged to participate at their own comfort level.

Party favors? We can help you customize aprons or other cooking accessories with names and/or logos. A Flying Aprons Tucson Gift Card also makes a great favor!

We’ll contact you within 48 hours to discuss details like available dates, attendance, your plans, pricing, etc. Please book events at least four weeks in advance, or longer if during the holidays season.

Once we’ve confirmed the details of your event, we’ll send a contract finalizing our agreement. We require a 50% deposit, payable by check or credit/debit card, at the time of contract to secure your reservation.

At least 10 days before your event, we’ll confirm the menu, guest count, and any other extras you may need.

Final payment will be processed at the conclusion of your event. We’re looking forward to a great kitchen adventure!

Please call us at 520-261-1996 for pricing and information on all special events. You may also want to review the In-Person and Virtual Class FAQs. 

Private Parties
Delicious fun awaits you and your guests celebrating a special occasion: A birthday, anniversary, bridal or baby shower, rehearsal dinner, family reunion, holiday party, girls’/guys’ night out, or any other landmark moment.

You can arrange for a hands-on cooking experience, a cooking demonstration, or a combination of both. Our talented chefs, working side by side with your guests, will ensure that both the meal and the moments are memorable.

With a customized menu to reflect the occasion and your guests’ tastes, they’ll learn some cooking skills, pick up useful tips, have fun while preparing a delicious meal, and make long lasting memories.

Corporate Events & Team Building
Get your team out of the office and into the Flying Aprons Tucson kitchen! Whether the goal is to set a positive tone for staff training, team building, a board meeting, a retreat, a holiday party, or entertaining visiting clients, there’s no better way than to cook together.

Our professional chefs will lead team members or guests through the steps to achieving the goal of a delicious shared meal. The experience can promote teamwork – goal setting, effective communication, task delegation, efficiency, shared responsibility, and cooperation.

You choose the level of participation – demonstration, hands-on, or a combination of both and we’ll customize the menu to reflect your team’s tastes. Isn’t this the recipe for success you’ve been looking for?

Kids & Teen Parties
Don’t settle for the same old (boring) party! A two-hour Flying Aprons Tucson party is guaranteed fun with hands-on experiences and menus designed for kids ages 7-12 and teens ages 13-17.

Junior Chefs will have a blast preparing a variety of dishes with special attention and instruction from a professional chef with experience teaching kids and teens.

With their newly-acquired knowledge and skills, they’ll be able to confidently prepare the recipes they learned. An added bonus – party guests will be able to wow their families with their cooking prowess.

Choose from our themed menus, designed around fun and healthy foods, or customize your own.
