I didn’t know it was so easy to cook healthy, flavorful food with ingredients from “scratch.” I never cooked with spices before other than salt and pepper. If I knew making great flavorful food was so easy, I would have started a long time ago. Now, I can say that I actually can “cook.”
~ Maria Depanfilis
The vegetarian cooking class has been a life changing experience. I have learned so much about wholesome foods and their nutritional value—how to cook, how long to cook so that we retain their flavor and food value.

delicious healthy food can be!

This was much more than a cooking class. We learned so much about good and healthy food and living. I loved the combinations of spices and herbs–and was amazed each time by the incredible feast that we put together.
