Give the Gift of Time This Holiday Season

10th December 2020

Finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list can be quite a challenge. Finding the perfect gift during a pandemic presents even more of an obstacle. This year, instead of running from shop to shop, stay safe at your The Victor apartment and instead brainstorm some ways to give the gift of time to your loved ones. While many of the events gift-givers usually think of—theater, sports games, movies—aren’t an option this year, there are other, smaller-scale excursions that are still in play.

While they may look a little different now, there are cooking classes right near your The Victor apartment that provide an exciting way to (safely!) enjoy the culinary arts and spend time with loved ones. CozyMeal is one such outlet. The national organization connects award-winning chefs looking to share their expertise with diners hungry for experience (and, of course, the food!). The Philadelphia chapter offers a number of options, including several chefs who teach classes out of their own homes or restaurants, many of which are just minutes over the bridge from your The Victor apartment.

At Chef Landi’s Queen Village home, for instance, he offers everything from classic Italian to healthy cooking with mushrooms. Chef Daniel’s Girard Estates classes range from Vietnamese-inspired dishes to classic Danish food, while Chef Frederico teaches dessert baking and team-building, competition-focused events. While not as common because of the pandemic, some chefs will also travel to your home to provide an on-site class—so you could get all the benefits and fun of a cooking class without ever leaving your The Victor apartment!

The site also offers a number of chefs who conduct online classes. For a cheaper price tag than in-person classes, diners can still see the cooking in action and try to follow right along at home.

Getting out and about to celebrate the holidays and your loved ones will be a little harder this year, but with some creativity and by taking advantage of all that Philly and Camden regions have to offer, this can still be an exciting and memorable holiday season.
