A hands-on cooking class culminating in a family-style dinner served with wine.

Rethink the rubbish bin—hang onto your carrot tops! Don’t diss the beet greens. Instead, learn how to incorporate the pieces of the vegetables typically tossed aside. You’ll learn how to make meatless dishes that don’t require hours of cooking and as we bring veggies to the center of the plate, we’ll also dive into ideas to prevent food waste. Annelies's recipes will be supported by produce from our friends at Imperfect Produce
