Recover. Cook. Thrive

Event Navigation

During this two-hour hands-on workshop, participants will quickly become proficient in using cooking as a therapeutic self-care tool.
We’ll teach basic knife skills, how to read recipes, and other useful prep techniques for immediate confidence in the kitchen and in life. The class reviews kitchen safety and cleanliness practices for optimal long-term success and culminates in a homemade recipe, produced and enjoyed together, creating community and
instant healthy self-gratification. It includes a take-home ‘cheat sheet’ of simple recipes and class teaching points for ease of reference and ability to re-create concepts at home. You’ll also receive the instructor’s contact info for continued support.
