Rassa is the world's first cultural social cooking platform filled with online cookery courses led by diverse chefs, who have unparalleled knowledge of their cuisine. Learn through doing, with pre-recorded video lessons, Q&A’s, live creative workshops and feedback from your peer group.
For the full 90 days and the specialist ingredients box each month, the total price is $650 (this works out at just over $167 per month plus an initial $149 deposit). This includes the cost of the specialist ingredients box that will be delivered direct to your door at the start of each module (every month).
If within the first 5 days you decide the course isn’t for you, you want to try a different cuisine or life’s busy schedule gets in the way, we can give you a voucher matching the course price which you can redeem at a later date (valid for 12 months).
This depends on your schedule, but you'll need to set aside around half a day a week to cover the key topics. If you have more time on your hands each course is packed with bonus content and recipes to get stuck into so that you can make the most of the platform.
Yes, every course is entirely virtual, so you can learn from anywhere. We’ve designed these courses to not just be convenient but also as interactive as possible: engage with your course peers from all around the world, ask the chefs questions, book onto live sessions and learn hands-on.
The courses largely use common items found in the majority of kitchens for example, bowls, scales, an oven, chopping knives. For some courses, there may be items like a barbecue for outdoor grilling however, we’ll let you know about this upfront. Once you enrol onto the course, you’ll have access to the full checklist of equipment you need as well as a few optional but nice-to-have pieces of equipment.
Once a month you will receive a pantry box with the hard-to-find specialist ingredients for example, spices, oils, pulses and vinegars. You will need to buy the fresh ingredients, majority of which you should be able to find in a supermarket/grocery store however, where there are less common items we will let you know where you can get your hands on them.
Yes, the chefs will be interacting with you and your peers answering any questions and giving support where they can. Every month you'll also take part in a live class with one of the chefs and your course peers, where you can ask for more in-depth feedback on your creations and showcase your work.
Rassa is still in beta, so at the moment the content is best viewed on a desktop device (macOS or Windows are both great). We are working on a mobile-friendly version to make it even easier to access.
The majority of the lessons are pre-recorded and so can be watched in your own time however, once a month you will have a live online class with a chef. For these live classes we try to be as flexible as possible and offer multiple time slots to cater for different timezones around the world.
