Cooking Classes: My Philosophy

All classes I offer integrate cooking instruction and hands-on food preparation with mindfulness practice. You'll come away with tools to increase your presence in the kitchen and in all areas of life. Classes are open to all unless a prerequisite is otherwise noted. I intentionally keep class sizes small, so pre-registration is required to hold your spot.

Upcoming Public Classes

Moroccan Vegan Delights - Sunday, November 6, 3:00 to 6:30 p.m., Topanga, CA - SOLD OUT


Moroccan cuisine is unique in the ways it marries together sweet, savory and spicy flavors. In this class, you'll learn plant-based recipes inspired by a cuisine that is often very dominated by meat. The class will include traditional staples of Moroccan eating, along with modern takes on classic recipes. Our menu will highlight warm, grounding recipes appropriate for the fall and winter seasons. Additionally, each attendee will prepare a jar of preserved lemons to take home to inspire future culinary explorations!

Class includes:

  • Overview of Moroccan cuisine: history and essential ingredients
  • Preserved lemon tutorial and preparation
  • Hands-on preparation of various dishes in small groups
  • Recipes to take home
  • A shared mindful meal
  • Opportunities for silent practice and reflections throughout
  • Great fun and awesome community!

This class is appropriate for all home chefs (including you!), regardless of experience. You will be provided with a list of items to bring to class.

Price: $110 before September 20 (early registration price) / $120 thereafter
