This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our event policies at the bottom of this webpage.

Celebrating the fall holidays with festivity this year might mean a few less people at the table, but that doesn’t mean being any less flavorful. Join Annelies Zijderveld who lives for bringing more veggies to mealtime in interesting ways.

In this class, you’ll make a boozy cranberry sauce with figs and tequila, chipotle mashed sweet potatoes, and the crown of the main course: cauliflower steaks with chile gravy. This is one class where no one will miss the meat and give you fresh inspiration for Thanksgiving.

Annelies Zijderveld believes cooking should be fun and flavorful, (and still can’t quite get over the amazing abundance of fresh produce and ingredients available to us in the Bay area). With a master’s in intercultural studies and a Mexican-Bolivian-Dutch heritage, she’s keen on finding the points of intersection around the table. Her food writing has recently appeared in Edible East Bay, The Kitchn, and San Francisco Classical Voice. Her online cooking journal, EatMoreMeatless.net explores creative and doable ways for all trying to eat more vegetables. Find her online at Instagram @anneliesz.
