Virtual Etiquette

Prepare your space

Make sure you have a strong internet connection with little background noise if possible.

Mute yourself when not speaking

This will eliminate background noise (like cocktail shaking!) that makes it difficult for others to hear the speaker.

Be sure to come prepared

Come 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 early

This way we can get to know each other and start right on time!
