Group Cooking Classes
See bottom of page for current offerings. Vegan Farm Stand offers 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?
Schedule of Group Classes/events 2018-2019
Every month we have new ideas: for example our thematic French dinner was created because-as a Francophile who lived in France and speaks French-I thought "What is a class that would be the jam to teach?" One of VFS's students even brought a custom-created cooking soundtrack with Edith Piaf and played DJ.
Unfortunately, VFS is moving! Although I have loved being part of the Merrimack Valley community these past 2 years… a new adventure in Cleveland, Ohio is beckoning! I am looking forward to bringing our friendly plant-based vibe to this up and coming city in June 2019.
