Please note: while our classes are heavily plant-forward, we are now also offering classes that feature animal products. Classes that are vegan-friendly and wheat-free and gluten-free are still abundant, and we are now including some classes which have animal products such as sustainably caught fish, grass-fed and pasture-raised meat and dairy. Note in the descriptions for each class to know if it is right for you. As always, if you have allergies, please let us know in advance so we can accomodate if possible.

These classes are a good fit for you if:

  • 'Organic' is an automatic preference or requirement for you.

  • You are going towards a healthier, more sustainable and plant-focused way of eating and interested in learning how to wow your friends with seriously sophisticated but 'unrefined' foods.

  • You are including more plant-based foods in your diet for nutrient-density.

  • You, or someone you love to cook for has allergies which restrict refined sugar, meat, eggs, wheat or dairy. (Check which classes are vegan, GF etc. in description)

  • Already practiced at conventional baking and cooking, you want to move the the next level, learning how to substitute common refined ingredients.

  • As a total newbie in the kitchen, you are attracted to eating wholesome foods and want to get some real-life experience with new ingredients.

  • You have self-studied about how diet can help manage a health issue, and are ready to clear up confusion about nutrition info 'out there' so you can get down to business and start making healing, tasty meals at home.
