    I enjoyed the Salads, Picnics and BBQs class today. Lots of good information, recipes and samples. I look forward to trying some of the recipes on my own! Thanks Mimi for catching me up after class since I got the times mixed up and came late. You were very gracious.

  2. This class was awesome! I got the class as a gift and really didn’t know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. Mimi makes you feel completely at ease. Her highly informative (yet not overwhelming) style of presentation is just right. And of course, the dishes she shares and demonstrates how to prepare are delicious! I also loved that we got to sample not just the dishes, but other vegan food items (including some great snacks!). I loved that it was so easy to ask questions as we went along and that Mimi not only has a culinary talent but keeps herself educated on various benefits of different foods and cooking styles. I would not only recommend that people her classes, I plan on going back again myself. Thanks Mimi!

  3. I would highly recommend this cooking class whether you are vegan, non-vegan or transitioning. This class is very informative on what to look for when it comes to ingredients in vegan dishes, as well as creative in the dishes that are made. (Not to mention the food is quite tasty). If you’re looking for creative, healthy, and colorful additions to your well-being, this is the class for you.

    Sure, you can search online for vegan recipes and read dozens of comments from folks you don’t know with different opinions about the recipes’ outcome. But the best bet is to go straight to one of the top vegan experts around–Mimi Clark. Her classes deliver tasty samples from manufacturers–Mimi knows them all from the food shows she attends around the country–tremendous insight into the latest vegan cookbooks and authors, and simply delicious bites of the dishes she’s prepared for you. The “chicken” salad, Mediterranean salad, and Fiesta salad are all winners and the teriyaki kabobs are definitely crowd pleasers. Her homemade salad dressings and mayo taste so much better and are much healthier than any you find in area stores. Whether you’re new to a healthier way of eating or a long-time devotee, Mimi’s classes have something for everyone. Can’t wait for the next one!

  5. This class had so many great recipes that I can use when my family goes camping. My favorite recipes were the Fiesta Salad, Teriyaki Kebobs, Chicken-Free Salad, and Chickpea Tuna Salad. We also learned how to make homemade vegan mayo (with only a little oil unlike store bought brands), and we learned basic grilling techniques. We got to taste all the food after it was prepared, and we got over 20 coupons to purchase the products.
