Employee Wellness Cooking Classes & Events

For healthy people and planet!

For the best in corporate wellness entertainment, bring me back for a cooking class, wellness fair, Discovery Bar, lecture, or combine for a Food Party! We have new classes and activities (with cutting board closeups), or we can design to fit your event.
