Sur La Table has offered classes since 1996, but it has now organized them on a more professional basis with its online culinary institute. In partnership with Strategic Education, a company that runs accredited education programs and Rouxbe, an online cooking school, Sur La Table is offering single two- and four-hour classes covering subjects like knife skills and plant-based recipes, and longer multisession courses on topics like professional cooking fundamentals and the basics of baking and pastry. Though they’re virtual, students will be expected to cook alongside the instructor. (Six of the courses are approved for college credit.) The chef Scott Conant, with the title of Master Chef, oversees the program. The classes are $59 to $299.
