Class Description: 

Tonight, we pay homage to the vegetarian by learning how to prepare glorious, heart-healthy vegetarian meals a flash!

Join us for a fun evening of ‘health-ified’ culinary education that’s dedicated to teaching you how to cook, eat and live better.  Few chefs in our area know more about healthy cooking than Chef Gary Hild, a longtime CCKC instructor (and former CCKC Executive Chef!).

For many years, Chef Gary was also the Executive Chef at Unity Village, a facility widely known for its vegetarian cuisine. So, he knows what he’s talking about! He’s a firm believer that plant-based nutrition is nothing short of culinary medicine. We agree.

Tonight, he’ll get to the “heart” of it as he teaches his tried-and-true recipes that feature “heart-a-licious”  ingredients. He’ll explain the vegetarian diet, the basics of cooking vegetarian, and as he teaches essential culinary techniques such as knife skills, the proper way to mix and measure, and more, to assist us in making the most of this nutrition lifestyle.

Each dish is designed to improve your heart health and can be prepared in a “flash”. Our menu includes Chocolate Hummus (no, we’re not kidding!), Caramelized Root Vegetable Salad, a savory lentil soup, Quinoa Pilaf that includes fresh veggies, and a sweet & savory delight - Polenta with Kale & Strawberry Glaze. 

Bring your questions because you’ll get loads of information from a very informed healthy cooking expert who walks the walk and talks the talk.


NOTE:  Unless otherwise noted, each evening class fee includes one glass of beer/wine, with additional beverages available at a nominal cost. 

Mask Policy:We are committed to providing the highest degree of safety for our guests including compliance with all applicable governmental orders.  At this time, we recommend and encourage all people, regardless of vaccine status, wear a mask when indoors and not actively eating.

Expert culinary instructors teaching simple steps that can change your life, one dish at a time! We have individual classes in our Cookwell™ Program as well as entire programs designed for corporate wellness initiatives. Why? Because wellness begins in your kitchen.
