The professional instructors of The Organic Kitchen teach paired or solo students to improve their eating habits and concoct quick and simple at-home feasts during organic cooking classes that draw on local veggies, grains, beans, herbs, and spices. Each 90-minute hands-on session for up to 15 students imparts knowledge on an array of culinary subjects with themes that might include Indian cuisine, soups and stews, chocolate, and southwest cuisine. Students gain a command of the basics as well as how to shop organic on a budget and incorporate healthful ingredients into their meals without simply sticking a broccoli cupcake atop every cupcake. At the end of class, participants can sample their aromatic artwork, all of which is gluten-free and vegetarian-friendly.

The Organic Kitchen

Despite what owner Rachel Yaseen has discovered for herself, she knows that cooking organic, healthful meals might seem intimidating to some. At The Organic Kitchen, she works to banish those impressions and inspire students with her own enthusiasm for natural foods, whether through cooking classes or intensive workshops. “Students learn to eat outside of the industrial food chain,” noted reporter Emily Gindlesparger of Zócalo Tucson magazine, “developing instead the creativity to source from their own yards and work with ingredients available in the Southwest throughout the seasons.”

Pupils learn to improve their eating habits and concoct quick and simple at-home feasts that draw on local veggies, grains, beans, herbs, and spices. Each class features only gluten-free recipes, and the sessions focus on culinary traditions from India, the Mediterranean, and other regions. Pantry makeovers go even further, helping facilitate lifestyle shifts with cooking classes and one-on-one coaching to rid kitchens of powdered hot dogs. When not educating, the chefs handcraft gluten- and soy-free Hiker-Biker bars from local honey and dates.
