Let’s Cook Together!

Celebrate Birthdays, Anniversaries, or Just a Friends’ Night Out

Grab your buddies or your partner and let’s whoop it up in the Edible Musings kitchen! Celebrate any event with a fun, hands-on cooking experience in a private or semi-private setting. We’ll work together to come up with a delicious, plant-based menu. I do the shopping, prepare the recipes, and we’ll all cook a fabulous meal together, ending with a sit-down dinner. Pricing varies.

Group 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 I promise you’ll taste good food. Some classes and events are fee-based. You will always get new recipes and friendships to take home after sharing some delicious food together.
