Salads are Not Boring (And Not Just for Rabbits)

In this 2 Hour Class we will learn the basics of what makes a salad truly shine and make three delicious salads that will rock your world. We’ll even use three commonly loathed ingredients (beets, kale, and brussels sprouts) into salads that even the haters will ask for seconds. Seriously. It’s been tested.

You’re a Saucy Minx

Veggie Burgers That Don’t Suck

In this 2 Hour Class, we will tackle the seemingly impossible feat of creating veggie “burger” patties that aren’t as dry as the desert, that don’t fall apart or blend into the toppings when you bite into the bun, and that just generally don’t suck. We’ll learn how to pair with the right toppings and bread, and won’t use any fake meat, just whole awesome ingredients.

Classic Veggie Cheeseburger with Roasted Tomato and Caramelized Onion

Black Bean and Brown Rice Burger with Tequila Avocado Mash and Chipotle Aioli
