Whether you are looking for a new stream of revenue, interested in doing outreach in your community, or both, please consider joining me for the Vegan Fusion teacher training course.

10-Day Portland3

In this teacher training, we will go over all the basics of conducting a cooking class in your community. We will go over menu development, shopping list creation based on number of students and yield of recipes, advertising and promotion for the class, preparing for the class, conducting the class, working with an assistant, fielding questions and everything else that goes into conducting a successful class.

We will shop together on the second day and each participant will get to conduct a portion of the class for the others.

“The teacher training course was fantastic! We learned everything we would need to organize and present a cooking class. After taking turns demonstrating a recipe, I feel very confident that I could teach vegan cooking to either a few friends or a class of strangers in a relaxed and friendly way. As with all of Mark’s classes, it was fun and delicious!”– Susan Hanson

The cost for the training is $950/person for the 3-day intensive. This includes the training, the teacher training manual, and daily meals on each day.
