 A Plant-Based Cooking Party

 A Fermentation Party

A Dumpling Party 


Invite Chef and Nutritionist Marcea around and you and your friends can roll up your sleeves, join in and have fun while you cook healthy, plant-based delicious dishes that will impress your friends and family. Share in the preparation and delight in the taste of a theme of your choice.

Gather together and invite friends and/or family and create a Zoom brunch, lunch or dinner party of your choice. 

Cooking parties are fantastically innovative and are slowly starting to emerge in place of the traditional dinner party. Instead of just one person toiling over a whole day of food prep- cooking and serving once thought to be relaxing and creative- can finally be once again when surrounded by a good group of people and an experienced chef.

Together, create a delicious three-course meal in 2 ½ hours with the services of your very own chef at home. Discuss cooking methods and healthier ingredient options (may sneak a peek in your pantry, fridge and freezer ).

A range of menus are available and sessions are adapted to what your needs are.  Simple everyday family recipes to more exotic party ideas are also available.
