whole-food, plant-based Cooking Classes

Why we don’t teach recipes

I don’t know how to follow recipes. I always change something. Turns out, it works. Why? Because I know my basics. And this is what I teach in my cooking classes. Know about Umami and how to get it into your dishes and you will have a great meal every time. Guaranteed! Then, I also provide my customers with free ebooks with the recipes, just in case 😉

Discover Fermentation, 100% plant-based

Just give it a try, no judging

If you read my blog you will soon find that I am not a judgmental vegan that want to convince everybody to become vegan now. I am realistic and know this is not going to happen and maybe not even the best option for everyone. But I found out that many out there would love to give more vegan meals a try, but find it hard to get started. This is where this cooking class comes in. I give you a real world introduction on whole-food, plant-based nutrition and we will have fun and experiment some incredible tasty and satisfying food.

There are so many doubts once we start questioning the way we eat, the way our ancestors ate and most of the people we know, friends and family included, eat. Is it healthy? Where do I get my proteine from? Do I have to eat only salads if go plant-based?

The answer to most of these questions are pretty easy, but one have to find them, and overcome the initial fear. This is where a cooking class comes handy, isn’t it? You know an actual thriving, real-world vegan which gives you some useful tips for your pantry and how to buy stuff. We can talk about doubts and I can pass you tips and tested&trusted recipes. It’s easier then you thought and maybe this can just be the beginning of a new life, where you live up to your morals and become a healthier person.

In my cooking classes I provide vegans and omnivores alike with background knowledge of how to create a great meal, every time, and some thrifty cooking techniques. We cook everything from scratch and create whole-food, plant-based dishes and drinks that satisfy the body, the soul and the doctor.
