“I enjoyed the informality of the class because I felt I could ask any questions no matter how simple. And I came away feeling as though I had just eaten in a gourmet restaurant! And was delighted to take home your food!”

- Anne D.
"I loved all of the recipes! Absolutely delicious! I felt very comfortable asking questions and the flow of the class was perfect. I learned how to cook with healthy ingredients and I am looking forward to doing another, thank you!!"

Heather hosted a private cooking class for my family, to celebrate my mom's birthday. Her space is beautiful and conveniently located. The food was great. Heather was super well prepared, so all we had to do was cook and enjoy a delicious and healthy meal. We had a great time, and we learned a lot, too!

The Green Palate Kitchen is a wonderful gem tucked away in Southport. I recently had the opportunity to attend a workshop there, Reset & Restore. It was a wonderful event, relaxed and casual with a lot of healthy information to be learned. If you are looking for clean, healthy eating & living guidance then this is the place to go. Heather's approach to healthy cooking is simplicity, teaching that we all are able to take control of our health through the right foods. I am look forward taking classes there again in the near future.

-Martha K.
I took Heather's Valentine's Day cooking class and she was absolutely sensational. She taught us the basics while still giving us useful tips that we can use in everyday cooking. Showed us what we have to do to eat healthy and still have our food taste great. Highly recommended to anyone looking to expand their cooking knowledge.

Cooking Class Details

  • Group cooking classes are typically demonstration and you will learn at least five, seasonal whole foods-based recipes along with plenty of discussion around relative health and cooking topics.
  • At the end of the 2 1/2-hour lesson (which include tasting/eating, lively discussion and having a fun time!) you will take home a packet of the recipes, and any other important handouts.
  • Come hungry! You will be eating the food we prepare. But note that there may be some time between cooking and eating. I typically have a dip to try while cooking but this depends on the class, so plan accordingly.
  • The monthly menus can be used for private group cooking lessons and cooking parties as well as more public cooking lessons. I am happy to accommodate food allergies or dietary restrictions. Please email me for more information.
  • To book your very own private group class, I request a minimum of 6 people, maximum of 10
  • Want to get in the kitchen and get hands-on? We can do that. Get in touch to find out how.
  • Classes are $140/per person and $150/per person if they are a three hour and includes a workshop.
  • Cooking classes are nonrefundable. You may take a credit if it is within 72 hours of the class starting but please think of this as buying a ticket for a show. You are always welcome to send a friend in your place. In the event that the class does not fill you will have the option to have a refund or a credit for a future class.
  • For hands-on classes please wear closed-toed shoes, pants and long hair tied back. You will be standing, prepping and cooking for much of the class.
