Hot Soups, Cold Days “Eye-opening!”

Garlic & Shallots “Sue is so down-to-earth.  I loved taste-correcting the dishes as a class.”

Classes in my home  Because we are in my home, we can see all phases of plant-based cookery.  For cheese-making, for example, that includes the stages of making rejuvelac and fermenting cheese.  Students will each make their own cheese and take home 16 oz. of cheese to ferment as well as 8 oz. of rejuvelac (enough to make 2 batches of cheese).  Class size is limited to 5 people and costs $50.  If you are interested in a group home class or a private one, please contact me directly:

My Philosophy

I’ve been eating a plant-centered diet since I was 19 years old and I love to share my skills with students of all ages. In class, I teach you how to create delicious taste experiences with healthy food. My motto is ‘food you love that loves you back.’ When I’m not working on children’s books (, I cook, cater and teach individuals and families how to cook low-fat, plant-based recipes in your kitchen as well as at our 150+ year old farmhouse in Grand Rapids. My classroom style is relaxed and supportive. Each student is encouraged to explore what works for his or her palate. To show students how delicious plant-based cooking can be, I bring lots of samples to class and organize supper clubs and idea salons, guide people to resources and promote healthy ways of eating and being-especially here in our beautiful geographic location of West Michigan.
