April Make and Take Vegan Cooking Class

Hey L.A.: Get healthy and eat right!

Cook your week of meals with the Urban Dinner Socials! We’ll make tasty salads, soups, entrees, and desserts – ten plant-based dishes – using local organic produce curated by Whittier Backyard Farms. You’ll take home vegan food for the week:

– Three Hearty Salads
– Two Soups
– Three Entrees
– Vegan Party Cake
– Cashew Ice Cream

Thanks to food TV, we all know what it looks like when contestants get handed a box of food and have to make it work. With us, instead of a mean chef screaming at you, there are helpful crew members providing support while you realize your vision.

We get the best, freshest organic local produce from Whittier Backyard Farms and Strub Avenue Farm. We also provide healthy staples from the Urban Dinner Socials pantry.

We help your team make one of ten dishes to take home for the week – nine other teams make the rest. Limited tickets available for the April 27 Make and Take Cooking Class.

How this Class Saves You Money:

Our week of meals ***costs half, or less*** than a similar week of meals delivery service. And, unlike other make and takes, your meals include a class to build your skills. We help you prevent waste, too: If you shop at the farmers market or have a produce box subscription, exciting but unfamiliar foods can languish in the fridge. We’ll help you with strategies to get these foods on the table.

How This Class Saves You Time:

Shopping for (or growing) local food takes time – this class taps into the seasonal sourcing expertise of Whittier Backyard Farms. ***They do your shopping for you*** and get you the freshest food on the market. We train you to plan 30-minute vegan menus, and crowdsource the time it takes to prepare your week of food. Shopping and cooking that could take 20 hours is ***finished in three hours.***

How this Class is Good for Your Health:

With food ready-to-eat in the fridge at home, you can avoid the temptation of eating out. Eating home-cooked healthy vegan food means you skip conventionally-farmed foods, chemicals, and denatured ingredients. In this class, learn how to commit to your ***healthy daily diet.*** We also address allergen-free cooking. And of course, we cook fresh, organic, GMO-free produce.


Learn to make fresh, tasty, satisfying vegan food using seasonal produce, and take home food for the week. In this class:

– Learn healthy cooking

– Take home food for the week

– Save time and money

– Cook a CSA produce box of vegetables

– Support locally grown food

– Cook with the seasons

– Practice no-waste cooking

– Eat more plant-based food

– Avoid dietary allergens

– Learn vegan kitchen hacks

– Cooking with a group is fun!


Cooking with the Seasons:

In this class, you’ll learn to work with local, seasonal foods from Whittier Backyard Farms and make food for your week. ***Peak season food*** can be unfamiliar, and you don’t always have the time or skills to deal with unfamiliar vegetables. We’ll show you how to incorporate any seasonal foods into your menus.

Build Your Kitchen Skills:

We’ll provide over 100 of our own ***original recipes*** to inspire your creation, and the chef and kitchen crew will share their kitchen skills and recipe strategies. We’ve worked with cooks at all levels for over four years. This class accommodates the new cook, the adventurer, and the seasoned foodist.

Be Your Own Personal Chef:

You don’t have time every day to cook a fancy meal, but ***30 minutes*** a day is all it takes to cook something simple and delicious. We’ll show you how to do this with 6-10 ingredients per dish. We’ll also show you how to include veggies in your menu if you only have ***five minutes*** to cook!
