"I... took one of your classes... & I have to tell you that I was so inspired, I cook now! For my entire life, if it wasn't microwavable & pre-packaged, I didn't have the time to bother. Now I only cook plant-based and MAKE the time to cook every week. I am actually enjoying cooking for the first time in my life & have planted two gardens this spring that are based on my favorite recipes. I look forward to attending the classes and learning more! Thank you!" Christine J.

Well, you know you're approaching Thanksgiving in Connecticut when the weather gets frosty, the trees look barren, birds flock to the feeder, and thoughts turn towards delicious comfort foods that warm up your innards.
And here's a classic one, befitting the Thanksgiving table, to entice even the most recalcitrant veggie eater, young or old: It's a classic pie with creamy, nostalgic pot pie flavors (but minus the poultry and dairy of course!).
Come to our class on November 20 and learn how to make a flavorful, unfussy, shortening-free pie crust that we'll fill with traditional pot pie veggies whose flavors meld beautifully and textures melt in your mouth. What's not to love? We'll sample as we go and you'll all get to eat some!
And I'll also show you how to fashion some tasty crackers out of the extra pie dough, that we'll serve up with some bean purées!
In my lively, fun, interactive classes I demonstrate fundamental plant-based no-oil culinary techniques. You'll learn new culinary methods, meet new friends, treat your tastebuds, and come away with recipes and culinary know-how that will help you become more confident and creative in your own kitchens.
Cooking and sharing food is a social, communal activity, a bonding experience and a fundamental way we express love and gratitude. Why not celebrate with friends and family over these warming, comforting, health-supportive plant-based dishes?
So wake up your senses! You won't get bored on your plant-based journey to better health & weight loss with delicious plant-based foods. They delight the palate, enhance your waistline, nourish your friendly gut flora, and promote your body's natural propensity to recover & heal.
"Just wanted to let you know my friend and I really enjoyed the class. The apple rosettes were SO delicious! We are both planning to attend the lunch prep class you told us about. Thanks again!" Lorenn L.
My mission is to translate traditional cuisines & create original dishes that are delicious, beautiful to behold, & entirely health-promoting -- & to share them with you! All my recipes are plant-based with no added fats, refined flours, sugars or oils. All are loaded with flavor, high in health-promoting fiber and antioxidants, & just plain fun to eat!
Plant-based foods, low in fat, high in nutrients & fiber, are the optimal foods to keep our gut bacteria happy & working on our behalf as we quench systemic inflammation & oxidative stress - the drivers of chronic diseases like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, & autoimmune disorders - our leading causes of death & disability.
So stretch your culinary horizons. It's easy, it's delicious. Vibrant health & energy are only a forkful away!
