Private Cooking Classes

I want to share with you and your family my favorite recipes! Each has been tested, approved and loved by my clients and family :-)

Whether you are looking to add in more veggies to your current meals or are focused on plant-forward eating, these classes are a great place to start! You will learn foundational plant-based cooking techniques and traditional cooking skills so you can prepare delicious healthy food, how and when you want it. This, along with time-saving tips and ways to reduce food waste - you’ll be sharing your new skills and recipes in no time! 

Classes include a customized meal plan, grocery list, kitchen tool list & instruction based on your specific needs. Most classes average 2 hours. Cost is $140/class for 1-2 people. (food not included)


→ THE MENU: Create your custom menu by selecting (one) recipe from the Breakfast & Snack list and (one) recipe from the Main Dish list.


→ SCHEDULE YOUR CLASS: Email me to set up a quick call so we can coordinate our schedules for the best day, time and location - either together in your Grand Rapids, MI area home or from anywhere virtually in our own kitchens. This is a great time to ask any questions you may have. After we connect, I will email you the meal plan, with menu, grocery list and additional details so you’re ready to go.
