A beginner's cooking class should provide most of the tools needed for the dishes, but students may be asked to bring food containers or their own knives. Students may also want to bring a notebook and pencil for taking notes.
Beginner's cooking classes are available in a number of areas from basic cooking skills to basic knife handling skills. It is a good idea for students to dress appropriately for any class. This includes wearing comfortable, protective closed toe shoes. Students may also want to wear their hair pulled back.
Some classes, such as a knife handling class, may ask students to bring food containers to take home their chopped vegetables in. These kinds of classes usually have knives available, but allow students to bring their own from home.
