Vegetarian Cooking

Join a group of like-minded people in the East Village to explore the art of cooking incredibly tasty and healthy food! In these classes, you will learn a variety of dishes, flavors, utensils, smells, textures, and colors to make your life better. And you'll most certainly walk away finding your kitchen a more comfortable, useful, and inspiring place, no matter who you are! This approach is based on Ayurveda, the 5,000-year-old tradition of holistic medicine that comes from India. It applies to practically any style of cooking, culture, or circumstance.

These are one-session classes that introduce you to the art of making delicious easy-to-make vegetarian meals based on Ayurveda. You will gain a basic understanding of:

  • Principles of what makes food healthy or not for you.
  • An overview of how to use spices and make spice mixtures.
  • An introduction into making entrées, soups, desserts, teas, and grain dishes.
  • The secrets of making sure your food is easy to digest and assimilate.
  • Tips on applying Ayurvedic principles to any type of cuisine.
  • Resources to support you in accessing optimal food choices in the grocery store or at restaurants

Each class will combine discussion, participatory cooking demonstrations, and ends with a delicious meal for everyone! As Ayurveda aligns health with the rhythm of the seasons, our intro cooking classes change focus seasonally.
