At a moment's notice, contestants from the Emmy-Award-winning show Top Chef appear in Top Chef University members' homes, ready to give one-on-one cooking lessons. Though users will meet stars such as Spike Mendelsohn and Stephanie Izard, they don't have to wipe down the counters or season their neglected cast-iron pans in preparation. That's because the school's 200 lessons are all online videos, streamable to any computer. Top Chef contestants walk members through a slew of cooking methods in 12 one-month courses, each composed of videos ranging from 5 to 30 minutes long. The easy-to-follow curriculum starts with basic cooking techniques such as saut?ing and braising, ending with more advanced recipes for modern and ethnic cuisines from Top Chef All-Stars winner Richard Blais. Each video comes with a printable recipe to save and cherish, along with a Top Chef Certificate of Completion.

Instructor Joshua John Russell sketches a cake design inspired by modern fashion, then demonstrates how to imprint fondant to mimic lace, corduroy, and crocodile skin and how to pipe icing into swirls and puffy pearl-like shapes. His students follow along, step by step. Yet those very students are spread across the country, learning from their own kitchens, dressed in their own aprons and footie pajamas. That?s because Joshua?s class, Fashion-Inspired Fondant, is part of the Craftsy library. The online education community has produced more than 340 engaging craft-making videos taught by expert instructors. In addition to cake-decorating classes, Craftsy offers classes in knitting, baking, quilting, jewelry making, and other fun and expressive media. Once students purchase a class, they can view the video whenever and as many times as they?d like, easily rewinding to rewatch a particularly intricate skill and bookmarking favorite moments to return to later. Craftsy also offers workshops, supplies, downloadable patterns, and a gallery of inspiring member projects.
