Vegan Cooking Workshop

Sweet without Sweets: Satisfying the Sweet Taste Through Daily Meals

Most of the time when we hear the word “sweet” we think of a dessert at the end of a meal. In this class, though, we’ll learn how to get the naturally sweet taste in our meals by how we use whole grains, vegetables, and other plant foods. Additionally, we’ll learn how to compliment the sweet flavor with other flavors to make a flavor-balanced meal. This is considered the healthiest way of using the sweet taste, and it’s also good for the spleen-pancreas organ system, therefore helpful to digestion in general and also for regulating the blood sugar for those with extreme sweet cravings or conditions like hypoglycemia and diabetes.

MENU: Golden Rose Rice, Sweet Rice and Corn, Pronto Pinto Soup, Sweet n’ Sour Vegetables, Crispy Bok Choy, Lemony Arame Saute, plus some extra surprises!

At the end of the day, stay to eat the meal you have prepared or take it home with you.

$45 per workshop (includes cost of ingredients)
