In Person Vegan Cooking Classes

Welcome to My Kitchen!

Come join me in my kitchen for hands-on cooking and baking classes. We will tie on our aprons, roll up our sleeves, and dive into preparing delicious plant-based foods. All recipes are vegan; no animal products are used. Instead, we rely on nature’s bounty to create delicious, healthy dishes.

These classes will inspire you to recreate your favorite recipes, and come up with new dishes, using plant-based ingredients. That’s the true joy of cooking… there’s no limit to what your imagination combined with education can create!

Benefits of Lessons with Vegan Friendly Cooking
  • Small Class Sizes Classes are limited to 4 students, so every student can participate in the preparation of each recipe.
  • Fun and Unique Activity Perfect for Date Night, Girls/Guys Night, Family Events and more. Instead of going to a crowded restaurant, cook your own delicious, healthy meal in an intimate setting. Make new friends or spend quality time with BFFs, partners, and family.

Non-vegans Welcome!

  • Are you vegan-curious or interested in adding plant-based meals to your diet? Maybe you’re already vegan and want inspiration and new recipes. These classes are for everyone!

More than Recipes

  • The tips and techniques you learn in class apply to everything you cook. Knowing how to substitute plant-based ingredients helps you prepare new dishes, modify family favorites, and create new recipes on your own.

Gain Confidence in the Kitchen

  • Helping my students master new skills and grow their confidence in the kitchen is one of my greatest joys. From beginners to advanced, all skill levels will benefit from the knowledge and skills shared in class. 

Saved the Best Part for Last!

  • Once the menu items are prepared, we sit down and enjoy our handiwork.  Sharing food with others is one of the best ways to connect. The cherry on top? No clean up!
