CSA Passport

Cooking in season means things like tomatoes in July, zucchini in the late summer and fall, delicata squash and rutabaga in winter. Eating seasonally is one of the most healthy things you can do for yourself because seasonal foods are more dense in nutrients. CSA Passport is your guide to seasonal foods and learning how to cook plant based with inspiration from cuisines from around the world. Each 3 month subscription comes with a monthly cooking class so you use and devour all your seasonal produce and get passport stamps cooking from your kitchen.

Plant Based Blueprint

In Plant Based Blueprint, we learn from some global communities that are heavily plant-based, leading chefs, nutritionists, and food artisans in the field to showcase a variety of delicious ways to add more vegetables, beans, sea plants, and multi-grains to our menus. Whether you are plant-based or just want to make your menus more healthful, this 3 part series is for you. Plant-based diets can help reduce your risk of heart disease and other comorbidities, but they’re not all created equal. The Meatless Monday movement is quickly growing around the world. Come cook and understand the benefits of going meatless while cooking deliciously. 

Pantry Power: Meal Planning & Pantry Audit

Meal Plan Like a Pro. How do you maximize your pantry by getting the most out of your local grocery, international food shop, and farmers market? A well-stocked pantry will have you prepared in case of an emergency, eat for a particular diet and lifestyle, make cooking joyful, fast, healthy, and seamless, save you money and time, and have you improvising and meditating in the kitchen. Let us get a menu plan together that meets your goals and coach you to achieve and maintain them.

Guides to get you started

A pantry is the heart of the kitchen. A compass is a symbol of journeys and travels. This guide will help point you in the right direction to plan menus frugally, jet set the world through your dishes, and not stress what you have for dinner because you have a plan. 

Markets are “community-building, community-defining and community-sustaining institutions.  They can provide opportunities for citizens to reconnect to the land, but equally important, they have helped reconnect with one another. This primer educates people about healthy food choices, shopping, cooking and eating with S.O.U.L (Seasonal, Organic, Unprocessed, and Local). To help you build your cosmopolitan pantry there are ingredient lists for 10 countries. 

Want to be Shaken, Stirred or Whirled, Salad dressings don’t have to be complicated to be good. Any dressing you make at home will be better-tasting and infinitely better for you than something you buy in a bottle. It takes a minute to make a dressing. Learn how to make salad dressings from around the globe and get your cosmopolitan fix right from your pantry. 

Kids are the recipe for changing how we eat in our society today. Learning by cooking, food also becomes a vehicle through which children excite their palates, exercise their math skills, employ their creativity and cooperation skills, and discover and appreciate other cultures and traditions. Our S.T.E.A.M Lab Manual is a guide to get you cooking and experimenting with your kids.
