Group Cooking Classes

See bottom of page for current offerings. Starting in the fall of 2017, Vegan Farm Stand will offer group cooking classes with a dinner featuring  global, plant-based cuisine at a historic mill facility in a commercial kitchen in downtown Amesbury, MA. These are 2-3 hour cooking classes with a dinner/sit down afterwards (approx 3.5 hours total).

Classes are thematic: think Spanish Vegan Tapas, Plant-based Cooking with Adult Beverages, and Taste of (Vegan) Paris! The classes are a fun evening for couples, friends, or individuals who want to learn to cook in a lively, informative, and supportive atmosphere. You will leave with:

  • A recipe book of easy-to-recreate recipes from that evening's session
  • A full stomach: we eat it all after!
  • Knowledge of how to use new tools and foods: what is a mandolin?  What is "forbidden rice" and why would I buy it? You will find out
  • New friends who will be great to explore vegan restaurants with

Private Group Cooking Classes

Interested in exploring a group class to cook your favorite foods with plant-based ingredients, but you already know exactly who you want to hang out with? Then let me organize a cooking class for you with all your friends, at the same kitchen where we cook for the group cooking classes (minimum 8 maximum 14).

Alternatively, I can also come to your home to spend 3 hours cooking with you and your friends or family (up to 5 people).

  • Do you want to learn how to make 5 different vegan desserts with a bunch of your gal or guy friends?
  • Do you want to get together with some friends to celebrate a wedding, a new pregnancy, or a new chapter in your life by exploring "culinary therapy" via plant-based recipes? 
  • Have you always wanted to host a plant-based dinner party and invite people to help you cook, but you don't know how?

April 14, 2018: Spring Vegan French Wine dinner! Celebrate le printemps with a fresh idea: 6 vegan French wines with  vegan recipes created around the wine profiles. This course is 2 in 1: we create the buffet in cooking teams, and then the pop-up dinner is overseen by a local wine expert, who planned the dinner with me. He takes over and leads everyone through wine flights for each course.

As a certified French teacher who lived in France, this is my dream class to attend much less create. 6 courses: Appetizer, Soup, Entree, "Cheese" plate, Salad, and Dessert. Create it and cook it with several other teams. This will be a bit higher cost than the others ($100), but it is two classes in one. To purchase it, buy a Gift Certificate for $100.00 for each person, and then email me at leann@veganfarmstand.com to reserve your seat. Space is limited to 14 participants! 

May 2018: TBA: this will be some type of international hybrid cuisine: Thai? Indian? Japanese? It's in the works.
