“I was lucky enough to participate in one of your virtual cooking classes earlier this year. It was shortly after my husband experienced a near fatal heart attack. We had just made the decision to switch to a plant-based diet. I have made many of the recipes that you post, and they are always delicious. At least once a week I find myself recommending your site to someone…by the way, my husband is doing really well and credits the cooking to his amazing recovery.”

– Rachel E.

“We really had an amazing day with you, and my mom still gushes about it when we talk! Thank you for a truly inspiring time, and know that we might make this a yearly ritual!!! Thanks again.”  

– Gina M. and family

“Thank you, Vicki, for such a wonderful class!  
We were looking to expand our options for vegan meals and you showed us how to create dishes that were absolutely delicious – and healthy. Your private cooking session was very hands-on, and each meal was well thought out. Thanks again for such a wonderful experience!”  
– Jeff and Jamie W.

“My husband and I enjoyed an evening cooking with Vicki, and can’t wait to make the spinach burgers at home! Vicki’s wealth of knowledge and willingness to share it are inviting and uplifting. She inspired me to begin cooking again, and made it all seem so effortless. This is the help I needed on my sometimes lackluster vegan journey, and it was a great experience that we thoroughly enjoyed!”  

– Leslie D.

“Wonderful class! Vicki is so knowledgeable, and she explains everything really well. Her presentation is organized and informative. Plus delicious, healthy recipes! Thank you again!”  

– Kathleen B.

    • Thank you for your question, Gina! Yes, yes, yes! I know that it can be a struggle to make eating well work smoothly on a daily basis, and the mall probably cannot provide much assistance. I would love to help you on your food journey, and I do teach both private and semi-private cooking classes in Ann Arbor. If you can send me a quick note (through my “Contact” page) I’ll send you lots more details. Looking forward to chatting with you more soon! : )
