Christina's Cooking Classes


“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” –Virginia Woolf
Ain’t that the truth! We need to dine well and to do that we must learn to cook well. 

There are four delicious ways to master the art of natural plant-based cooking with Christina: Demonstration Classes; Hands-On Classes; Three-Day Intensive Study Programs and The Six-Month Christina Pirello Wellness Institute.


Demonstration classes

These full-on demonstration classes with Christina Pirello will tantalize your taste-buds with voracious vegan cooking! Using fresh, seasonal ingredients with her unique kitchen wisdom and understanding of how food works Christina will guide you on your path to create health and expand your food repertoire…and your palette. If that’s not tempting enough, you’ll sample yummy generous tastings of the dishes prepared in class as well as receive the recipes. Don’t miss a single one! Wellness never tasted so good!

Three-Day Hands-On Intensive

This one-of-a-kind program is designed to give you the knowledge and understanding you need to get started on the path of healthy cooking. From the beginner to the seasoned cook; whether you’re healthy or trying to regain your health, there’s a place for every skill level in this unique class. Combining lecture, demonstration and hands-on classes over a three-day period, Christina will have you cooking healthy…and delicious meals in no time. Using only the freshest seasonal ingredients, covering breakfast, lunch and dinner, you will taste natural food at its most luscious. And here’s the best part. From the energetics of food to knife skills, cutting styles, menu-planning, diagnosis and more, you’ll take this knowledge home so you can cook your way to wellness. 
The program begins Friday afternoon at 2:30 PM with orientation, followed by lecture, Q&A and a delicious dinner prepared by Christina’s assistants (ending between 7:00 and 8:00 PM). Saturday and Sunday classes begin at 8:30 AM and end at 5:30 PM both days.

They are healthy, natural and all deeply grounded in using whole unprocessed ingredients.

It’s All About You…The Series

I’ll admit it. This is an experiment that could succeed wildly…or fail miserably. It all depends on you (no pressure, my darlings…okay, maybe a little…).

It sprang from this. You guys have a lot of questions for me…all the time, every class. And I love that! Often, I have questions for you…so I can understand what you want and need. So let’s have at it. All you have to do is show up and bring your questions…lots and lots of questions…on any topic or concern you have.

Sure, we’ll cook and create a healthy, delicious feast that you’ll enjoy…from soup to dessert…made from whole, unprocessed, seasonal foods, simply prepared.

But otherwise, the class is an open forum…for you…it’s your chance to ask me all your burning questions.

One important point…a bit of encouragement to spread the word, if you like…bring a friend for half the fee of the regular class price…but there’s a catch…they have to be new…a Christina virgin so to speak.

So join me…because honestly, I can’t do this series without you.
