My son was very proud.

He learned to cut different kinds of vegetables. He is a super picky eater and I think this was a great experience for him.
  • First, we educate...

    No matter the age or audience, our classes include age appropriate kitchen tool and knife skill training. Our classes educate on the nutritional value of each recipe and its importance to your overall health. Making healthy choices is easier when we understand why we need to eat certain foods and the health benefits it will provide our body.

  • Then we inspire...

    Whether in a class or a wellness workshop, our goal is to show healthy cooking can be fun and easy. Our wellness workshops focus on simple nutritional steps everyone can do to improve their health. Class topics may focus on heart health, managing stress, diabetes or other health related issues.

  • ...and Engage.

    Nothing is more engaging than being hands on in the kitchen. We empower kids and adults to have kitchen confidence through experience that is fun and educational. We engage through guidance and encouragement in the creation of delicious nutritious meals. Join our mailing list for weekly tips and recipes.
