Let’s Work Together!

Cooking Classes and Events

Typical classes are 2 hours, and you will work in groups of two to make healthy, plant-based dishes. The Edible Musings kitchen can accommodate up to 10 people. You will follow a recipe and instruction that I provide and we’ll always have fun! Certain classes may be cooking demonstrations, and you’ll taste good food. These are all fee-based classes, ranging from $25-50 based on the complexity of the recipes and ingredients. You will always get new recipes and friendships to take home after sharing some delicious food together.

Register for classes through the Edible Musings Facebook page or email me directly: lauren@ediblemusings.com
