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 three delicious ways to master the art of natural plant-based cooking with Christina: Demonstration Classes, Hands-On Classes and Three-Day Intensive Study Programs.

 

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!

The Wellness Intensive

This one-of-a-kind residential program is designed to give you the knowledge and understanding you need to get started (or re-inspired) on your path to a life of wellness.

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 residential program that combines lecture, demonstration and hands-on classes over a long weekend. We live, eat, debate, discuss and cook together over 3 days resulting in a bonding and a deepened understanding of how food works to create (or steal) health and wellness.

Using only the freshest seasonal ingredients, inclusive of 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 develop and deepen your knowledge so you can cook your way to wellness once we all head home.

The program? You will love this. It’s intense, but oh, so fun:

Thursday: check in after 2 pm.
Program begins at 4:30 pm with orientation and lecture with Christina, after which a delicious dinner is served (prepared by her partners in crime).

Friday: Breakfast class begins at 7:30 am, serving what we prepared at 9 am, with class beginning at 10:30 and going until 5:30 with a break for lunch (all made from class recipes). After dinner, we will host a discussion group.

Saturday: Breakfast class begins at 7:30 am, serving what we prepared at 9 am with class beginning at 10:30 and going until 1 pm, followed by lunch made from class recipes. Then the afternoon is yours to explore our surroundings.

Dinner is at 7:30 pm on Saturday evening at the inn.

Sunday: Breakfast is served at 9 am with checkout at 10 am.

Live Your Best Life

We hear it all the time. Heck, I say it all the time. 
 
“Let this be your healthiest spring…summer….fall…winter…year.” It’s exhausting!
 
And yet we continue to struggle. We “fall off the wagon.” Here’s a heads up. There’s no wagon to fall from. We’re not drunks currently not drinking or addicts currently not using (unless of course you think of sugar or cheese as drugs…). What will it take for us to take a stand for our health and wellness? what will it take for us to commit…once and for all…to healthy eating? 
 
We live in times that demand that we be at our best, be our strongest. Our food supply is compromised. Our collective health is in a downward spiral. It’s time to turn it around and make food choices that serve the purpose of your life.
 
Lucky for you, that is a most delicious choice! Let’s gather in the kitchen, cook, talk, laugh, feast and inspire real change so that living your best life is a reality and not a cliché
