Got A Question?
Here are the most common questions and answers about premium membership in Traditional Cooking School.
Wow! Membership includes a lot! Where should I start? How can I keep it simple?
We offer a New Member Orientation to help guide you through navigating the member's area. You'll see it when you first log in. Make sure to do that. Then, our Fundamentals eCourse is perfect for beginners or those who want to keep it simple. And when you're ready for more, all the other eCourses will be waiting for you!
Is this just a bunch of recipes or is there more to it?
Traditional Cooking School is sooooo much more than recipes!
We show you how to eat and follow a GNOWFGLINS lifestyle. (GNOWFGLINS means... God's Natural, Organic, Whole Foods, Grown Locally, In Season.)
Over the years, we've done all the hard work of practicing techniques so you can skip to the tried and true. Our methods are easier, our recipes are easier, and everything is healthy as can be.
We support you through our private online community, by email, and through our monthly member meetings.
We help you put into practice what you're learning in the classes by giving you weekly menu plans that you can simply carry out (instead of worrying everyday "what's for dinner?").
And finally, in our opinion, and we've heard from many others, our classes are second-to-none. We include the what, why, and how for every topic, so you learn how to do the method as simply and nutritiously as possible, and you UNDERSTAND why you’re doing it.
So yes, Traditional Cooking School is more than just recipes! We’re family…. and we want to give you everything you need to succeed! So you and your family can "look good, feel good, do good"!
Is there a required class schedule?
Lessons are self-directed so you can move as quickly, or as slowly, as you like. One lesson per week works best for most of our Traditional Cooking School students.Some people do every lesson and every module in order. Some people skip all around to get a taste of everything. It’s all up to you!
Do I need to be sitting at my computer at a certain time?
No. Lessons are pre-recorded for your convenience. You have 24/7 access to them. We often create brand new modules and lessons. The newest videos will be released on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. You can check in on Thursdays to see the latest lessons hot-off-the-presses.
What if I'm not on Facebook and can't access the private group?
Not on Facebook? No problem! Our private group is NOT on Facebook, it's on our own site along with all the member-only videos and downloads. :)
What kind of internet and computer do I need to get the most out of Traditional Cooking School?
A high-speed internet connection and a newer computer that can stream videos and download large files works best. Traditional Cooking School is optimized for Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. To speed things up: increase the cache limit in your browser to at least 500mb and clear the cache regularly. Cookies must be enabled to log in.
The member area and videos work on most mobile devices, but we can’t guarantee 100% compatibility. We solve glitches as soon as we discover them and do our best to make our site user friendly.
I'm not a believer. Is religion a heavy theme at Traditional Cooking School?
We focus on the techniques of preparing real foods using traditional methods that preserve or enhance the nutritional value of the original ingredients.
There is a heavy emphasis on answering the “how” questions. However, there is always a reason for “why” we do things, and it is this “why” that is often more important than the “how.”
Our philosophy: At Traditional Cooking School, we believe that God is our creator and the source of all things good. God is the “why” for all that we do, including the way we cultivate, harvest, prepare and eat foods. That’s why we share our love for God and explain how we can see God’s design in our food.
This resonates with most of our members, though some participate solely for the techniques. We are happy to help you either way.
Do you use lard, pork, or any other unclean foods at Traditional Cooking School?
Our materials do not require use of any Biblically unclean foods. If a recipe lists an unclean food, Biblically clean alternatives are listed as well.
You're in the United States. Are your classes and recipes suitable for those overseas?
Yes, our classes and recipes work for traditional cooks all over the world. If you have trouble finding ingredients or equipment, please visit the private members' Facebook group to find other members in your area who can quickly help you get what you need.
I'm on a special diet (gluten-free, dairy-free, GAPS, gut healing, etc.). Will your classes/recipes work for me?
Yes, our classes and recipes work for special diets. You see, we not only include recipes, we teach fundamental techniques (like fermenting, making broth, culturing) that are important in so many healing diets. We also have many allergy-friendly recipes, so whether your issue is gluten, dairy, eggs, or you're on a special diet, you'll find lots that works for you!
How can I cancel?
You can cancel at any time using an easy cancel link in the private members area. We hope you don't cancel, but of course we understand if you do.
What's the cost after the free trial?
You'll pay $0 now and then after 30 days, it's just $47/month for $15,000+ in value. You can cancel any time and we'll send you an email reminder a few days before the first charge; we want it to work for you!
