Food Unites Every Single One of Us

It’s something we know all too well living through a pandemic. We want to connect with each other, and cooking is one of the best ways we can do that. That is why I created Cooking Companions, virtual cooking classes that bring together a community of cooks. You get to learn a variety of meals twice a  month from the comfort of your home, mentored by an expert health supportive chef. Cooking Companions teaches you how to love food and stay healthy. Me and my guest chefs will give you the skills you need to feel competent in the kitchen along with a variety of recipes to keep you inspired.  We know It’s easy to get in a cooking rut, making the same meals you always do. With our classes, you learn how to source well, be a more savvy shopper, multitask, and combine flavors more intuitively.

How Cooking Companions Works

  • Sign up for individual months or become a monthly subscriber and receive the classes at a discount with access to class recordings.  
     

  • Each month provides two classes taught by Marti Wolfson and one of her guest chefs. Classes are 1 hour with time to ask questions during and after class. 
     

  • Once you register, you will receive an email with the recipes, shopping list, prep list and Zoom link.  You can either watch and learn or cook right along with the chef.

 

All menus are gluten and dairy free. They range in global cuisines. And they always involve a plant-based, seasonal menu.  People from all ages and skills have taken our  classes and have told us how they are eating better, feeding their families a greater variety of dishes, and enjoying the connection with other cooks.

Expand Your Cooking Repertoire and Skills

Each class will leave you with more skills to draw from and greater intuition in the kitchen. Our instructors give thorough instructions on how to cook through the recipes and adapt with other ingredients.

Connect With a Community of Cooks

Part of what makes Cooking Companions superb is the connection to other cooks. The interactive experience with the other students and teachers creates an inspiring and educational class.

Get Comfortable Cooking With Seasonal Ingredients

Seasonal ingredients are freshest, cheaper, and more nutrient-dense. You’ll become more confident in how to shop and cook creatively with the season’s best ingredients.
