Cooking with Amanda

Amanda Strombom, President of Vegetarians of Washington, gives regular cooking classes to support those interested in moving toward a plant-based diet and learning new ways of preparing food avoiding animal products. Each class focuses on a different aspect of going veggie, whether it’s on specific food groups, on a particular health topic, shopping or even holiday cooking.  Plenty of samples to taste are always provided. See upcoming classes below.

Cooking classes are held at East Shore Unitarian Church, Bellevue, 7pm unless otherwise noted. A nominal charge of $5 per class helps us cover the cost of the ingredients and materials. Shopping tours are free.

Upcoming Class:

Ditching Dairy

Wednesday Feb 5th, 7pm, East Shore Unitarian Church, Bellevue

Dairy products often contain surprising amounts of saturated fat and cholesterol, and come from cows forced to give birth frequently.  We’ll talk about the many alternatives to dairy that are available these days, we’ll taste samples of some commercial products and make some simple cheese alternatives of our own.

Make a reservation

Many cooking demos by professional chefs and talks on health and nutrition by doctors are offered at Vegfest. More classes will be arranged after Vegfest.
