I teach a variety of gluten-free vegan cooking classes. Some are whole food plant based with little or no oil, some are nutritarian, some are remakes of traditional comfort foods, and some are designed to help transition people from the standard American diet to one that is based upon compassion. Here's what is coming up.
Currently, I am teaching cooking as part of the Plant Based Paleo Support Group.

"JoAnn Farb is passionately well versed in the science of nutrition, yet presents her findings in an engaging and easy-to-access way. Her presentation is well worth the time, whether you are or are not ready to become a vegan."
"JoAnn Farb's work combines a science background, a keen sense of observation, and a profound commitment to making things better. She is gifted in her ability to share her findings and her conviction with people of different points of view, and inspiring audiences to action is part of the package."
author of Main Street Vegan and founder of Main Street Vegan
"JoAnn Farb's presentation was informative, sincere and emotionally heart-tugging. Well thought out and put together, her activism and passion is admirable and highly contagious! She is one of many leaders in a very large movement, and we all have something to learn from her hard work and dedication."
"Farb, a biologist and activist, urges adults to be consciously aware of the choices they make in parenting and how these are shaped by such outside influences as the media, popular culture and marketing. The author covers a number of issues, including natural childbirth, breastfeeding, animal rights and progressive education, citing research as well as personal experience to shore up her arguments in support of each."
Review of Compassionate Souls -- Rasing the Next Generation to Change the World
"JoAnn Farb is someone who translates her passion regarding the vegan lifestyle into a commitment of her own time and energy in order to find real solutions. She asks us to consider why eating cows, pigs, and chickens is acceptable, whereas eating horses, dogs and cats is not, and even though this paradigm may initially offend, amuse or baffle you, it will ultimately challenge you to examine your daily choices. JoAnn is a scientist, an author and a convincing speaker. You will not be the same person after you have heard her presentation."

She has a rare ability to challenge and empower her listeners to view issues from fresh, new perspectives".
