Cookery Classes

Do you want to know more about medicinal, therapeutic food and learn how to cook it yourself?
Tess is excited to offer private in-home cookery classes, for you or a group of friends. She’ll guide you through nutritive food and will show you how food is medicine.
Each class will last 2-3 hours and will be tailored to your needs and desires. Each participant will come away with printed recipes and the knowledge to be their very own health-promoting chef for themselves and their family.
Learn how to make an incredibly easy and healthy salad dressing, or a smoothie using whatever health-promoting ingredients you have on hand, or a grain dish where you can substitute almost any grain, or a creamy soup using a countless combination of veggies, or a sweet treat of whatever flavor in your food processor! The goal is to empower you to envision and create your own meals based on simple basics that you will learn.
