Know thy Food
Founded by chef Kristen Lépine Dos Santos in 2011, Know Thy Food celebrates the vegan food scene and shows that vegan food isn’t only healthy, but can be fun and delicious. Know Thy Food stays away from sugars, dairy, gluten, and meat and instead focuses on fresh fruits, vegetables, and spices. This cooking school offers virtual cooking classes where students will be sent recipes, videos, and important techniques they can use for their meals. This cooking school also has private classes allowing students to work one-on-one with Lépine Dos Santos who will guide you through each step of the meal-making process and give you helpful tips along the way. Private classes at Know Thy Food will also teach you how to create tasty vegan meals without having to rely on recipes, crucial knife skills, and how to properly store food. Some snacks and dishes you’ll prepare here include almond milk, quinoa tabouli, and chocolate pudding. Each private class costs around $400-$450.
