Mission:

Provide FREE virtual cooking classes with nutrition education, making it accessible for all.

Why:

There are numerous studies that show that spending time on food preparation at home can be essential to healthier dietary habits. Virtual Teaching Kitchen takes it a step further by offering virtual nutrition focused cooking classes where participants cook along in their own homes.

Frequency of eating home cooked meals and potential benefits for diet and health: cross-sectional analysis of a population-based cohort study

What:

Each class will feature a delicious recipe and provide nutrition education on a particular topic. All classes will be cook along, but of course you can watch and join in the conversation if you aren’t cooking too.
