VIRTUAL ETIQUETTE

Prepare your spaceMake sure you have a strong internet connection with little background noise if possible.

Mute yourself when not speakingThis will eliminate background noise (like sizzling pans!) that makes it difficult for others to hear the speaker.

Be sure to come preparedCome with ingredients and supplies ready! Set yourself up in the kitchen where you have ample counter space and access to a sink.

Please come 10 minutes earlyThis way we can get to know each other and start right on time!
