In this interactive cooking class Chef Mike will teach you how to make several Italian dishes using all plant-based ingredients. As you cook, you'll learn tips and tricks for packing flavor into vegan dishes. To begin, you'll toss together a Caesar salad with a tempeh crumble and nutritional yeast.

Chef Mike was AWESOME! He prepared a delicious meal for our bachelorette party, and we all loved him. He was very knowledgeable and taught us some interesting tidbits about the ingredients he used. Mike was funny, entertaining, and a good hang. 10/10 would recommend you to hire Mike for an educational and enjoyable cooking class experience!
