Cooking With Your Plants On!

A free chef-guided, online cooking club

Looking for a little nudge to get into the kitchen? Cooking With Your Plants On! is an informal and fun virtual cooking club designed to bring together good food and good people. If you want to start gaining confidence in your plant-based cooking, join us from the comfort of your kitchen in a 1-hour-ish session featuring one or two delicious recipes. The difficulty and style will vary, but the recipes will always be powered by plants. You'll learn about new ingredients and techniques, and meet other like-minded folks just like you! Everyone is welcome whether you’re vegan, plant-based, curious, or just plain hungry!
