Let’s cook TOGETHER and TAKE THE STRESS OUT OF MEAL PREP during quarantine! All recipes will be simple, easy and centered around ingredients you have in your kitchen or those “easy” to find. Recipes, shopping list and Zoom link will be emailed upon received payment. Please note, sign up early so you have time to shop for the recipes. Monika will provide ideas for ingredient substitutions, nutrition tips and interact with guests during the class. Have a question during class? Shout it out! This is NOT a YouTube cooking tutorial or TV cooking class. It’s interactive! Invite your family and friends for a fun social event while staying at home! Zoom link emailed after payment is received (*non-refundable) *Please let Monika know if you don’t receive the recipes via email (check Spam/Junk folders)! HOTMAIL AND OUTLOOK EMAIL ADDRESSES TEND TO HAVE TROUBLE WITH EMAIL CONFIRMATIONS AFTER REGISTRATION. 

Also, now booking PRIVATE VIRTUAL COOKING CLASS events for your office, birthday party or friends/family! Contact me for more information on customizing your special event!

$10 per class or both August classes for $19 (you can always cook the recipes on your own if you can’t make one of the dates)

Tips for Success:

If you’re a novice in the kitchen, that’s OK! We will cook at pace that will allow you to be empowered and confident!

  1. Read all recipes before class. Gather ingredients and equipment so that everything is ready for cooking! Some of the food may be prepped before class if you prefer. Monika will mention specific prepping tips on some recipes.
  2. Print recipes before class or have them readily available to read on a screen as we cook together. If you forget, that’s ok. You will be instructed on each step on the recipes.

Well-organized, great energy, Monika made everyone feel at home, and the extra tips on health were most welcomed!

I m such a novice that I really appreciated the advance handout giving me time to shop, prep, pull out everything I need throughout the process. And cooking alongside Monika was terrific! I felt so accomplished by the end!
