Semi-Private Chef Training – Fall + Winter 2015/2016

I am happy to announce that I will be hosting another series of cooking classes throughout fall and winter 2015/16.

As a classically trained chef, the format is similar to classes I took while in chef school with a 30 minute lecture to begin, followed by 1-1/2 hours of hands-on time in my kitchen, with me (one example of our class mise en place).  Not only will you learn the tips and tricks of Organic Vegan Cuisine, but you will be guided through a step by step procedure of how to plate and present each dish. Whether you are nourishing yourself, or others, these classes will add to all you know, or can serve as a great starting point to inspiring you in the kitchen.

Each session, will be limited to a maximum of 8 people, but upon request can be tailored for even fewer. I look forward to being joined by Holistic Nutritionists who would like “chef training” to be able to deliver their incredible dishes in the best way possible, fellow chefs and restaurant owners who want to expand their repertoire to include plant-based, gluten-free and whole food menu items, the home chef (that’s all of you!), vegetarian and vegan teens and everyone else with kitchen curiosity.
