VIRTUAL COOKING CLASSES

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)!

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/class or $45 for all 5 July classes

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.

If you have eaten a Vietnamese bahn mi sandwich, you KNOW these will not disappoint. We will prepare plant-based sandwiches made with baked tofu for a flavorful and easy Wednesday night dinner.

Kid’s Cooking Class – Fancy Grilled Cheese & Banana “Nice” Cream (Ages 4-12 with adult supervision)

Virtual Cooking Class
Sunday, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm PST (ish)

Cost: $10

Let’s take the grilled cheese to the NEXT LEVEL in this class! Kids can select their own ingredients to add to their grilled cheese. It’s a perfect time to experiment and try something new! Maybe it’s a white cheddar, tomato and basil grilled cheese? Or a gruyere, spinach and fig version? The sky is the limit but it’s also ok to keep the grilled cheese classic too! We will then whip up some mouth-watering banana “nice cream” with options for flavors (chocolate, strawberry…). Let the kids cook dinner again! Everyone will love these recipes!

Summer isn’t complete without a focus on the grill, right? In this class, you will marinate chicken (or tofu) in a simple, tried-and-true marinade prior to class.

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!
