Are you clueless in the kitchen? Are you looking for ways to make healthier food? Or are you just looking to improve your basic skills and gain some confidence in the kitchen? If so, let me help!  

In our private lesson, I will give you simple tips and instructions and we'll prepare (and eat!) a few healthy plant-based dishes. 

The lesson may include:

  • 2 - 3 hours of guided instruction that will include hands-on prep and cooking

  • Recipes custom designed to your tastes, skills, likes, and dietary needs, etc.

  • Knife skills (chopping, dicing, how to hold a knife, etc)

  • Information about healthy cooking techniques (steaming, sautéing, etc)

  • Must-haves for a healthy kitchen

  • Nutrition tips


Classes can be held in any kitchen in the Ottawa area. When you sign up for a class, I will be in touch with you to learn more about you, your skill level, dietary needs, your kitchen layout, appliances, etc.


I will send a detailed shopping list prior to your lesson so you can check off the items you already have, and pick the items you don’t have.  

Please contact me directly for more information about the service and my rates.

N.B. Cooking lessons can be adapted for couples, families or groups.

"This past spring Amy visited my home to present a Healthy Sweets Workshop to myself and three friends.  What a great time we had!  Amy had provided a grocery list in advance and identified what cookware we would need.  She provided all the recipes and then worked with us in groups of two to prepare them.  We were amazed at how many desserts we were able to produce in such a short time.  Amy was so helpful and shared her knowledge and ideas easily with us.  Of course, one of the best parts was sampling each of the desserts after the session and knowing that they were healthy."
