Event Details

This class lesson kicks off a one-week fundraiser to raise money for more FREE cooking classes!

PART I- Students will gather with the restaurant's chefs to prep a delicious spring dish (recipe: Caesar Salad w Bread Twist).
PART II- Students will have a tour of the restaurant's kitchen, learn how to set a restaurant-style table, and serve their families their prepared dish.
PART III- The appetizer, inspired by our students, will be served throughout dinner service for an entire week (March 16 thru March 22)! Tell your friends to come and dine at Vesta.
     --> 100% of sales of every appetizer sold will raise funds for more cooking classes!
     --> Even if you don't join us to learn the dish you can still help us raise funds by dining at Vesta!

More information can be found on our website's 'What's New' page (linked here).

Allergic to Salad specializes in healthy, fun, and hands-on cooking classes. We believe healthy, wholesome food is for everyone, making sure our classes are affordable to everyone: they're free! We utilize fresh, local, seasonal, and organic ingredients whenever possible. We are allergy aware -- none of our classes utilize nuts, many are vegetarian, many are lactose-free, many are gluten-free. All dishes are fun, simple, flavorful, nourishing, and hands-on. We know that many kids are "allergic to salad" and push tastes beyond the basics in dishes like homemade tomato pasta, spinach-raisin fatayer, sweet corn and tomato papusa, watermelon-tomato gazpacho, rainbow harvest tacos, and more!

Why cook?
Classes provide basic kitchen safety, food handling, food prep and technique, including knife skills. We encourage cleanliness, proper table setting and manners. Cooking is known to increase motor skills, math skills, build self-esteem, self-reliance, and more!

How can you offer free classes to the public?
Our classes are currently funded by generous tax-deductible donations from people like you. More information can be found at ioby.

Allergic to Salad

Allergic to Salad specializes in healthy, fun, and hands-on cooking classes.

We realize many claim they are “allergic to salad”– a convenient and understandable excuse in this era of pre-packaged industrialized food. Our work combats this widespread “allergy,” while increasing skills, technique, and familiarity with healthy foods, and creating a platform for a lifetime of nourishing exploration through hands-on, activity-filled classes.

While we are cognizant and sensitive to the variety of food allergies prevalent, the foods we share are for most every child, whatever the age, who declares he is “Allergic to Salad.”
