January 29th, 2016 · 28 Comments

We are inviting you to join us on a French Classic Cooking Course, we have an extra special deal to share with all our readers… A couple of the Yuppie Chef courses have just been put on the UDEMY platform, which is an online learning platform with bazillions of online courses. The French Classic Cooking Course is available right now on the UDEMY site at $29.00… but I have a fabulous special of our readers. I have a number of vouchers that will allow up to fifty folk to join us in the class for only $5.

A new year and half way through our school year and we are always looking for some inspiration to get us through the second half, something fun and something that we can all enjoy together. How about a cooking course. Our kids learn French as part of their schooling and I know they are dying to master some French Classic Cooking skills, not to mention the father person’s favourite dish in the world is a fine crème brulèe…

A while back Yuppie Chef started a Cooking School… online lessons and perfect for all ages and stages. We found the courses a great way to learn online: a series of fantastic videos, with class notes and printable recipes, se7en lessons and each lesson finishes with a fun quiz to see if you have learnt the material well.


Previous Yuppie Chef Courses We’ve Done

We have found online learning to be a great way to supplement our school and a fun way to learn together as a family. The one difficult thing about learning online is that it is easy to sign up, do one lesson and then weeks pass by and you never get back to it. So we have decided to invite our readers to join with us. Sign up, for a great deal and then experience the ride with us.

Here’s the Plan

We are taking a week for folk to sign up and preview the course, and give everyone a chance to get their ducks in a row. Next weekend we will start in our kitchen with Lesson 1, and we will instagram (#cookingwithse7en) our experiences as they happen. Each Monday after that we will blog about our journey through the lesson and readers will be able to share their experiences and cooking too. And we will do that week after week until we have made our way through the course. The idea is that every one has a week to conquer a class, share your feasts on instagram and each Monday we will blog a post, pulling the story together.

How to Join Us

The French Classic Cooking Course is available right now on the UDEMY site at $29.00… but I have a fabulous special of our readers, wherever you are in the world. I have a number of vouchers that will allow up to fifty folk to join us for only $5.


If you would like to join us, leave a comment


You will receive, via email, a voucher that allows you to access the course for only $5.

I do have to add that this isn’t automated, I have to email each of you and it might take a little while to get back to you, we homeschool a number of kids over here and email takes time… don’t panic I will get back to you with a voucher as soon as I possibly can.

We would like to thank Yuppie Chef for inviting us to join them on their new Cooking School Adventure with UDEMY. This is not a sponsored post and we were not paid to write it. However Yuppie Chef did provide us with free access to the course and fifty $5. vouchers to share with our readers. Opinions expressed throughout our journey will be as usual, entirely our own.
