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

When it comes to your holiday feast, we all know it boils down to the sides dishes. #AllAboutTheSides Holiday side dishes spotlight seasonal gems: vibrant squashes, deep forest-colored leaves, shiny sparkles of fruit, and more. Tangy dressings, luxurious sauces, and spices make these accompaniments sing, often overshadowing the main course. Sides are even more valuable if your diet is centered of plant-based foods, or if you are hosting vegan and vegetarian guests. 

Join Marie as she teaches you how to make a variety of vegan sides that are easy to prepare, sassy, and satisfying. Super bonus: gorging on these plant based won’t leave you in the traditional food coma. Feast on this!
