Our Winter and Spring Cooking Classes

Veggie Cooking Around the World is offering a series of cooking classes that focus on planning and preparing scrumptious whole grain and vegetable dishes to enhance your table. All  classes are held at Vernon Hills High School, Vernon Hills, Illinois from 6:30-9:30 pm.  A sample meal is served in the class.

CLASS 1    Basic Vegetarian and Vegan Cooking for  
                     Teens and Parents                                                          February 21
Learn the healthy, whole grain approach to vegetarian and vegan eating. Instructors Jim and Amy will show you how to cook grains, beans, and hearty soups. You will learn four easy ways to cook vegetables.

CLASS 2    French Vegan Cuisine à la Julia Child                       March 20

  "All of the techniques employed in French cooking are aimed at one goal: how does it taste" - Julia Child.  In this class Jim and Amy will create a rich tasting vegan meal by adapting traditional recipes from French Cuisine. While Julia offers Boeuf Bourguignon, we will prepare Non Boeuf Bourguignon. Instead of Chocolate Mousse made with eggs, butter, cream and sugar, we will show you a recipe for Chocolate Dream Mousse with the same richness and texture as the classic variety. The meal will include soup, vegetable (fagots de legumes aux fine herbes) and salad. How will it taste? Register and find out.


CLASS 3    Healthy Plant-Based Brunch                                        April 24
Learn how to make a satisfying brunch with hot multigrain cereal, whole-wheat sourdough pancakes, corn muffins, tofu scramble, miso soup, blanched roots and greens, and fruit salad.

The classes are easy, fun and for all skill levels from beginner to chef.  

Class fees are $39 each plus an ingredient fee payable to Amy and Jim on class night.
