Cooking Demo Recipes

Over 30 people attended this fun class, where they learned about plant-based nutrition and how to make two no-cook nutritious recipes – a Kale Waldorf Salad and a Chicpea Salad. Samples were provided as well as free veg starter guides.

Our presenter, Karen Burzichelli works with clients teaching plant-based cooking classes and helps them transition to a healthier diet to prevent and reverse disease.
